Protect Threatened Rhinos From Illegal Poaching

Target: Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Chairperson of the African Union Commission.

Goal: Crack down on criminal gangs that illegally slaughter threatened rhinos.

Poachers have killed at least 1,338 rhinos in the last year. This is the largest slaughter in over a decade, negating all previous conservation victories. Demand that African authorities eradicate illegal poaching before it is too late.

Rhino horns are a precious commodity in many Asian countries. They are rumored to cure cancer and treat many other ailments. The outlawing of the ivory trade and increased demand has driven the price of rhino horns higher than ever before. This has prompted criminal gangs to track and kill rhinos. These gangs are dangerous both to the rhinos and to the people who try to protect them.

It is time for law enforcement to crack down on these gangs and put a stop to this devastating slaughter. Sign below to protect the rhino and those who fight for its survival.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chairperson Dlamini-Zuma,

Poachers killed a record number of rhino’s in the last year. At least 1,338 were slaughtered for their coveted horns. We demand stricter law enforcement practices to combat this illegal trade.

Now a rare commodity, the rhino horn is sought after in many Asian countries. The outlawing of the ivory trade has only increased this demand. Now, dangerous criminal gangs have begun killing Africa’s rhinos with little fear of recourse. They also pose a threat to civilians and anti-poaching teams. This relentless slaughter must end before the rhino goes extinct.

Do not allow illegal poaching to undermine previous conservation gains. We demand that law enforcement crack down on illegal poaching practices in order to save a threatened species.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The guards should be allowed to shoot on sight and prosecution should be extremely severe. It is ridiculous that there are never any repurcussions to the poachers actions, and the same people continue to commit the same crimes repeated.

  2. must kill all poachers now.

  3. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser
