Shame on Trump for Legalizing Trophy Hunting

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Shame on you for lifting the ban on importing exotic animal “trophies,” including endangered elephants.

The killing of rare and endangered wildlife is being legalized by the Trump Administration. Trump is reversing an Obama-era ban on the importation of endangered animals, such as African elephants. Trump’s sons are major big game trophy hunters, and this decision is believed to be related to the Trump family’s passion for killing rare and exotic animals, coupled with support from Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. Sign this petition to condemn Donald Trump for encouraging the slaughter of African elephants by American trophy hunters.

Ironically, the Trump administration is claiming that allowing the slaughter of African elephants is actually a “good thing” for the species. They claim that trophy hunting (which is the killing of big game for ‘sport’ and the ‘prize’ of bringing rare animal parts back into the country) is actually a means of preserving biodiversity. The Trump administration has literally claimed that hunting elephants “can benefit the conservation” of the species.

In reality, trophy hunting disregards the life of the animal, has negative ripple effects for the rest of the animal’s ecosystem as the strongest members of a population are lost, and rarely provides meaningful financial benefit to the local communities.

The Trump administration is betting on the public being too dumb to realize that just calling something “conservation” doesn’t actually make it so. Allowing the slaughter of endangered African elephants is not “conservation,” it is destruction and it is incredibly immoral. Sign this petition to condemn Donald Trump, his sons, and his administration cronies for legalizing the slaughter of African elephants.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Donald Trump,

Your legalization of international trophy hunting under the guise of “conservation” is cruel and unacceptable. The American people will not fall for your deception and thirst to promote the killing of endangered animals. Trophy hunting is not a viable or responsible conservation method and must not be treated as such.

Trophy hunting entirely diminishes the worth of the lives of animals and threatens the natural order of their ecosystems. The majority of Americans support the conservation of animals, not their slaughter. Your prioritizing of your sons’ desire to kill exotic animals over the wishes of the American public and world at-large is shameful. You must reverse your plans to legalize trophy hunting.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
