Stop Poachers From Killing and Dismembering Endangered Animals

Target: Joseph R. Biden, President of the United States

Goal: Fund international anti-poaching organizations to protect critically endangered species.

Recently, a lion in Kenya was discovered trapped in a wire snare that nearly severed his paw. Luckily, veterinarians arrived on the scene in time to free the lion before he died of infection or hunger. A spokesperson for the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust insists this was the work of poachers, who are encroaching on lion’s prey sources and maiming the big cats. Unfortunately, this is nowhere near an isolated event. Tens of thousands of these traps are thought to be set up across Kenya.

Despite international efforts to combat the illegal killing and dismemberment of endangered animals, poachers are still thriving. In the first six months of 2022, 259 rhinos have already been killed for their horns in South Africa. At this rate, rhinos will likely be extinct by 2036, followed by multiple other highly poached animals. Several important wildlife rescue organizations—such as the one which helped to save the trapped lion—exist to combat the devastating effects that poachers have on individual animals and entire populations.

Sign this petition to demand the U.S. increase funding to anti-poaching agencies to help provide the necessary resources for them to continue—and expand—their fight for animals’ lives.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Biden,

Despite widespread efforts to curb the illegal killing of animals, the poaching crisis continues to threaten the stability of endangered species. Recently, an animal welfare organization in Kenya stumbled upon a lion whose paw was nearly severed from a wire snare trap. Thankfully, veterinarians on scene were able to save him— but many others aren’t so lucky.

Already, in the first six months of 2022, a total of 259 endangered rhinos were killed for their horns in South Africa. If these mutilations don’t stop soon, poachers will likely hunt rhinos to extinction by the year 2036—a fate that dozens of other poached animals including pangolins, Asian elephants, lemurs, and tigers face as well. There are many agencies and organizations doing their best to protect these incredible species, but they cannot do it on their own.

We are asking you, Mr. Biden, to increase funding to anti-poaching organizations and help them in their fight to conserve our wildlife from money-hungry poachers.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    It is heartbreaking. These animals have the right to be here and we humans are to respect them, take care of them. Let them live their life . None of their bones or whatever will help humans live longer.

      Estoy totalmente de acuerdo Mariana!!….Ademas estos cazadores no entienden ni de respeto, compasion ni de nada, cazan por “deporte”!!!

    • They do not use bones or other parts to live longer it is mostly because the little rotters think it gives them sexual power. If people in all countries stopped buying this stuff there would be no need to poach it.

  2. Gilda Provenzano says:

    I will sign this but this is a JOKE! NO POTUS CAN DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS.Know what is working for a rare white rhino for last 5 years in Africa? ANTI- POACHERS WITH GUNS. They have no problem killing poachers trying to get to this rhino.

  3. President Biden as an animal lover it’s time you set presidents about animal welfare. I know you cannot control other countries but you can start with you own. You are mostly the people who hunt these animals and illegally import the stuff.

    • Gilda Provenzano says:

      What i have learned over the years is that each country must deal with these horrific crimes. Biden signed law that was overturned by tRump. ILLEGAL TO BRING ANIMAL BODY PARTS INTO U.S. Nothing will change if he signs this.

      • Julia Edinger says:

        Nope!!!! you are wrong,,,, again!!!!

      • Manitou Calmstorm says:

        Who in the hell is tRump? There is no such person. Stop making people up to make your god, Biden look all perfect.

        There’s no such thing as a perfect person except Christ, of whom Biden is NOT.

        Plus, how could Mr Trump have overturned anything by the dumbass president, if he’s not president himself?

        If you wanna go shooting your mouth off, you better watch your aim.

    • Gilda Provenzano says:

      As soon as animal welfare lawyer sends me article where it is ILLEGAL to import animal body parts here i will post it. Not sure if you heard about pos who bought live animals here in N.Y. airport. Arrested. Security is very tight regarding import of animals. DEAD OR ALIVE.

  4. Since the USA is known for it’s trophy hunting lovers it’s only right that we at least work to stop poachers, we’re losing too many animals to both of these groups so stopping one is better than none. And if the hunters cannot import their kill, or trophies, maybe they’ll consider other hobbies – we can only hope.

    • Gilda Provenzano says:

      Some pos bought live animals at New York airport from another country. Was arrested. Those animals were bought to a sanctuary.

  5. These sick and disgusting murderers will be paid back after they die ( hoping they die a horrible cruel death). Because Satan won’t even want them.

  6. Maria Lavorato says:

    Poachers and persons/countries buying the animal products all need to be charged! All countries worldwide need to clean up and enforce anti poaching laws with extreme/maximum charges and fines!

    Hope you all get what you so deserve and hope it is coming SOON!

  7. William Turner says:

    Please america.HELP !

  8. We have no right to deprive a single lion of his life, and for any reason either.

  9. Julia Edinger says:

    THESE COUNTRIES HAVE THEIR OWN PEOPLE WHO ARE IN CONTROL OF THEIR “LAW”,,,,, THOSE PEOPLE MUST STOP THIS HORRIBLE HORRIBLE TREATMENT!!!

  10. Michelle Taylor says:

    The only good hunter is a dead hunter! Hunt the hunters!

  11. Poachers need to be publicly executed on live tv!!!

  12. Wendy+Morrison says:

    THESE CRUEL ABUSMVE POACHERS SHOULD BE KILLED A SLOW ABD PAINFUL DEATH AND THEN DISMEMBER THEM!! STOP KILLINGVAND DISMBERING ENDANGERED AND ALL OTHER ANIMALS TOO IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!!

  13. Shirley Lemieux says:

    The U.S should be doing more to combat international poaching. This is a real problem and has been going on for what seems like forever. Critically endangered species are being killed for their body parts.

  14. Agree all comments this bullshit don’t work. STOP NOW THIS CRUELTY WHATS WRONG WITH LAWS AND GOVERMENTS USELESS FUCKERS.

  15. Patricia Leigh Wicker says:

    POACHERS ARE JUST PURE EVIL!!!!!!! THIS MUST BE STOPPED!!!!

  16. Jane+Morrow says:

    Support organisations like Vetpaw and IAPF – they are effective and don’t muck about.

  17. Manitou Calmstorm says:

    Who in the hell is tRump? There is no such person. Stop making people up to make your god, Biden look all perfect.
