The poaching crisis is escalating at an alarming rate fueled by Chinese demand. It is being carried out by very sophisticated gang related individuals. As such WorldWomenWork is to concentrate its efforts in 2012 in helping to tackle this urgent problem. We are therefore extending the timeframe for this petition to maximize its impact. Please share with your friends and urge them to sign the petition. We have to stop this slaughter.
WorldWomenWork and Swell Pictures are in the process of producing a film on the crisis and have done and are doing a number of interviews, including Crawford Allen, Director of TRAFFIC, North America, Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton, Founder and CEO Save the Elephants, Carter Roberts, President and CEO World Willdlife Fund U.S., Ginette Hemley, Senior Vice President, Conservation and Science. We will be announcing the release date of the film on the WorldWomenWork.org blog as soon as we have one.
