Stop Killing Elephants to Make Jewelry and Souvenirs

Target: Htin Kyaw, President of Myanmar

Goal: Stop the epidemic of killing elephants for leather jewelry and souvenirs.

Elephants are being killed rapidly in the country of Myanmar, in large part due to poachers targeting them for their skins. While elephants continue to die for their ivory as well, there has been a rising trend in the killing and skinning of these creatures to make leather for trinkets and jewelry. Most of the cured elephant leather is then smuggled into China. We need to take action and demand that Myanmar do more to protect these endangered animals.

Most of the skinned elephants have been discovered in the remote Ayeyawady Region of Myanmar, which is considered to be a lawless zone. Villagers are often intimidated and are afraid to report poachers to authorities, making the true extent of the crisis difficult to determine. What we do know is that there are now fewer than 2,000 wild elephants remaining in Myanmar, and unless more is done to crack down on illegal hunting and killing, they will disappear soon.

The government of Myanmar must crack down on the illegal trade of elephant parts, including their skins. Sign this petition to demand that stronger laws be put in place to ensure that these elephants can survive.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Kyaw,

Poachers are killing wild elephants for their skins in the Ayeyawdy Region and elsewhere at unprecedented levels. Elephants are being killed and skinned to supply countries like China with elephant leather, which is made into jewelry and other trinkets. This ongoing slaughter is horrific and is pushing the elephant population to the brink of extinction.

There is no reason that elephants should have to die at the hands of illegal poachers to make these gruesome souvenirs. We, the undersigned, demand that you do more to protect these magnificent creatures and call for stronger laws and harsher penalties against poachers. Please do not allow Myanmar’s remaining wild elephants to die out.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. It’s spiritless soulless people, that will kill anything, for whatever reason, animals or people, they have temples with meaningless deities …..

  2. Joseph Lalli says:

    We should honor the dignity and spirit of animals whenever possible. A good start towards doing so would be to simply let them be.

    • Totally agree with you. Everything about the elephant belongs to the elephant. If these subhumans want skin jewellery, let them kill each other and make it from their own skin

  3. how fucked up humans are why would you kill a living thing to make dead things wtf i can not wait when mother nature destroys the human race

  4. Catherine Jenereaux says:

    Do you think President Kyaw is going to stop the slaughter of elephants. They don`t respect humans. That whole part of the world is corrupt and everything is about money. No compassion, no ethics. Stop slaughtering the wildlife and torturing the people. The fact the elephant skin is going to China is no surprise; another disgusting country. They actually put life turtles etc. into key chains. If people did not buy the products there would be no slaughter. WAKE UP CONSUMERS read the labels. Do you really need to wear or carry something made from an innocent animal.

    • I agree with all that you say. These people In The East are like cavemen, barbaric and cruel, wicked and evil. I just wish a disaster would wipe them off the face of the earth, they do not deserve to live, I pray they would learn to respect animals, this really is dreadful – Burma lot and Chinks are all RETARDS, and STUPID if they think they look good in another creature’s skin -scumbags

  5. Louise Jeffery says:

    No surprise to find China cropping up again, that appalling country is behind, or responsible for, the worlds worst animal abuse. Disgusting people disgusting countries.

  6. Patricia James says:

  11. UNBELIEVABLE!!! I’m sickened by humanity!!!

  12. Simon Rimmer says:

    Ellies must be protected at all costs. Poaching must become a death penalty crime, time to clean up the human garbage in the world!!!

  13. Sir – Promote Eco-tourism, this will ensure employment = better live for your people. Stop killing these magnificent creatures! This will bring bad Karma onto you and your people! Has Myanmar not yet had enough of that? More will surely follow! The world is looking at you and awaiting your actions – it will let us know what type of leader you are!

  14. I guess the all mighty dollar is more important than the lives of these precious animals. What right do those monsters have to do something so horrible. This senseless act of slaughtering needs to be STOPPED immediately!

  15. Elaine Milbourn says:

    Until the authorities deal properly and severely with these evil pieces of filth, who care nothing for the precious animals they torture and kill for profit, this rotten trade will continue. Time to make a stand and make the perpetrators suffer.

  16. I would like to see ALL the poachers shot dead and left where they fall, wicked, evil cavemen. Let the scavengers peck their carcasses, then display their bones around the edge of where the animals live JUSTICE FOR ALL ANIMALS

  17. Htin Kyaw, President of Myanmar

    I HOPE THERE IS A “|SPECIAL PLACE” IN HELL FOR ALL POACHERS. THEY DESERVE IT.

    Htin Kyaw, : You have the power to STOP the epidemic of killing elephants for leather jewelry and souvenirs. DO IT.

  18. We have no right to kill elephants they’re too precious to slaughter for anything !! We need & have to do more to save them. They’re so intelligent & family orientated. Beautiful & need us !! 🐘🐘🐘🐘💕💕💕💕

  19. This ignorant stupidity must come to an end. People are so obsessed with the material things and does not care or care to understand the Massive Violence taking place in the jungles to shoot and murder these majestic animals. STOP THIS IDEOLOGY NON SENSE OF BLOOD BATHS OF other sentient beings to full fill the moronic peoples selfish desires. Lock up the people who demand to kill these animals. Also shoot the people who invade the jungles to murder these animals. That’s the only way to STOP this madness.
