Justice for Elephants Slaughtered While Seeking Water to Drink

Target: Abiy Ahmed, Prime Minister of Ethiopia

Goal: Stop poacher killings that have already led to deaths of half a dozen elephants.

Six elephants from an Ethiopian wildlife refuge were massacred within just one day. This barbaric onslaught seemingly refutes wildlife authorities’ assertions that no organized poaching exists inside the country. If this slaughter continues, Ethiopia could lose some of its most important wildlife forever.

During the past few decades, this country has seen its elephant population slashed by a stunning 75 percent, largely due to poaching.  The six fallen elephants in the latest attack apparently ventured slightly outside their home in Mago National Park to get water. The butchers who killed them removed all their tusks. These poor animals paid for their lives because they were thirsty. Since resources are currently being diverted away from park oversight, poachers take full advantage and will likely commit more atrocities if they are not stopped.

Sign this petition to urge Ethiopia’s government to reprioritize the protection of its most storied and beloved wildlife.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister Ahmed,

Botswana suffered severe backlash when it lifted a ban on hunting elephants. Across Africa, many countries have been confronted with the eradication of these majestic animals from droughts and, more prominently, from merciless hunting and poaching. Please do not let Ethiopia become the latest enabler of this endangerment that could too quickly take a destructive turn towards extinction.

Recently, six elephants fell victim to a mass killing near Mago National Park. The butchers who slaughtered these animals for their tusks will likely go on to continue the disgusting practices that have already wiped out 75 percent of Ethiopia’s elephant population ….unless you stop them. The period of government transition has passed, the lacking oversight brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic is easing, and the excuses are gone.

Give authorities the aid and resources they need to identify and apprehend these killers and all poachers with reckless disregard for the law. Increase security that can safeguard the sanctuaries these wildlife call home. Please do everything in your power to protect Ethiopia’s natural wonders from exploitation and deadly greed.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
