Stop the Giraffe Body Parts Trade in U.S.

Target: Jim Kurth, Director of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Stop United States giraffe parts trade to save what remains of the population.

Fewer than 100,000 giraffes exist in the world, a shocking 40 percent drop since the 1990s. This is largely due in part to the booming giraffe parts trade in the United States, with such products as knives made of bone and rugs made of fur being sold in 52 separate locations for a grand total of tens of thousands of dollars.

There are currently fewer giraffes than elephants in Africa. Considering the state of the elephant population and the dangers they face, this is terrifying. These gentle, beautiful creatures are being slaughtered and made into luxury items for a profit rather than being appreciated for their beauty and allowed to live in peace. Poaching is one of the cruelest and most selfish acts of animal abuse there is; no amount of money is worth the lives of innocent creatures.

The giraffe population will continue to decline and eventually disappear forever if the United States does not stop the trade of their parts and the sale of luxury items made of those parts. Sign this petition to save what remains of these gentle creatures before it is too late.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Kurth,

The world’s giraffe population has dropped 40 percent within the past 20 years, partly thanks to the United States’ booming giraffe parts trade. Thousands of giraffes have died needlessly for their fur and bones to create luxury items, which are sold for tens of thousands of dollars in over 50 locations around the world.

You must stop this trade. Giraffes are beautiful and gentle creatures, and they do not deserve to die for the sake of money and luxury items. Less than 100,000 remain in this world; in Africa, their numbers are lower than that of the elephant, and elephants are already nearly extinct. Save the giraffe population from disappearing forever by putting an end to the trade of their parts.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Please stop this disgusting action

  15. Wayne LaBeaud says:

    No more ..please stop this

  16. Tell the generational Satanist scum with no empathy and no moral conscience to go to hell and leave giraffes alone. They are an endangered species because of low life degenerates in the USA who are predatory scum who should be exterminated. People who want to slaughter giraffes should be put before a firing squad. Sick of the low life trash in the USA who are mentally deranged lunatics with poor brain function who are obsessed with slaughtering animals because they are inhuman savages who should have been strangled at birth.

  17. Save the Giraffes. Hang anyone who endangers their existence. DO ANYTHING, BUT SAVE THEM AT ANY COST.

  18. This is apalling. How would and could anyone fo this to a majestic animal? NO MORE TROPHY HUNTING!!!!!

  19. It upset me greatly that our government allows this in the United States. It’s also appalling that our President allows this to happen,but then,he has friends and 2 sons,that are trophy hunters and none of them care about killing any endangered species.
    If we,the people, don’t stand up against these atrocities, we are going to lose all of our wildlife, clean air and water,the Grand Canyon will be destroyed from Fracking and Mining,that Trump wants to allow (these 2 activities could cause our largest volcano, which is under the Grand Canyon, to erupt and put us into an Ice Age, which will kill more than half of the people in our country, kill our food supply & we wouldn’t see the sun for many,many years).
    Trump has broken many of our laws,so what makes us think that he would save the giraffes from slaughter,just for skin & bones?

  20. Dawn Pettinger says:

    That’s dreadful, how could they get away with this atrocity, it’s all about greed and profit. Don’t they care about giraffes, who are not preditors but gentle beautiful animals. I’m disgusted with trump and his cronies, with there trophy hunting, destroying the planets wildlife. How that man ever came to power, is beyond me, it’s all about the KKK who voted him in. I hope the world gets to hear about this latest catastrophe, coming out of America.
