Save Elephants From Slaughter in Vietnam

Target: Truong Tan Sang, President of Vietnam

Goal: Urge Vietnam to protect its critically endangered elephants

Vietnam’s Elephants are on the verge of extinction. A combination of weak environmental laws, high poaching rates, and other related conflicts has nearly wiped these animals out. A conservation group called the World WildLife Fund has looked into the issue to try and save the elephants, but the situation may be too far gone. The group is making an effort and raising awareness for the elephants, but it will take a lot of work to bring them back from the brink of extinction.

Vietnam has not been very diligent in terms of animal conservation. It has made a few commitments, like setting up protected areas for the elephants, but the plans that were implemented to help the elephants were ineffective and unsuccessful.

The situation is dire, but there may yet be hope: If officials in Vietnam gather together all of these elephants and provide them with the care they desperately need, then it is possible for their population to bounce back. Urge the president of Vietnam to help save his country’s elephants from extinction.


Dear President Truong Tan Sang,

Vietnam is a beautiful country with its abundant agricultural grasslands, but one member of the animal world is suffering in your country. Unfortunately, the elephant population in Vietnam is on the verge of extinction. We ask you to help the elephants by introducing new laws to protect them. The current laws and regulations are not being implemented in the most effective way. There needs to be a safe place for all of the elephants because the areas in which they live are being taken over by food plantations. If this happens, then there is a good chance that they will be taken off of the extinction list.

As the president of Vietnam, please help us save these elephants. They are smart and beautiful animals that need our help to survive.

    Its sadistic to kill wild elephants who are an endangered species, in his day and age.
    They belong in the wild with their families and no uneducated stupid humans have the right to slaughter, hunt, poach, use for cheap entertainment, train/domesticate, use as slaves chained up, use to beg, abuse in temples, use in logging and treckking, also tourisum, use to ride on.
    All its about is making money from a intelligent animal, because these humans do not know how to make money from a normal occupation even if these so called humans try and feed the public into thinking that all this giving the paying public a close-up of a elephant they may never see.
    They try and call it education, and also say the elephants love being looked at performing tricks for everyone to watch.
    The history of all this belong sas history, not just to be acceptable when the truth of how abused and the suffering they endure in silence is now shown around the world, and these so called humans know the secrets and dark side to it all is out.
    How sad it all is for humans who have to make money from stealing vunerable elephants from the wild.
    Slaughtering a elephant is inhumane whoever takes part will have the eyes of the world watching them.
