WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Unequivocally ban all ivory commerce to save elephants from extinction.
Future generations deserve to grow up in a world where elephants thrive. Children learn “E” is for Elephant, not Extinction.
Close to 100 elephants are killed each day for ivory. Africa-based terrorist networks such as The Lord’s Resistance Army, Janjaweed, and Al-Shabaab fund their nefarious activities with profits from the illegal ivory trade.
We applaud your Administration for issuing the National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking to protect elephants and other endangered species and firmly support your leadership and unprecedented efforts to combat the illegal ivory trade.
Banning ivory commerce will turn the tide for elephants, enhance African security as well as our national security interests, and ensure a responsible environmental stewardship for future generations.
