Make Poaching of Endangered Animals an Internationally Punishable Crime.

Poaching of endangered species affects the world, once the species is gone, they're gone forever.
So tell the United Nations to make poaching of endangered species a crime that is punishable in any nation no matter where it occurred. Tell them to make sure poachers aren't safe ANYWHERE in the WORLD.

The crime is against the world, so the jurisdiction should be the world.

      “Human beings are a part of the animal kingdom, not apart from it. The separation of "us" and "them" creates a false picture and is responsible for much suffering. It is part of the in-group/out-group mentality that leads to human oppression of the weak by the strong as in ethic, religious, political, and social conflicts.”

      this is important for me because i believe that someone needs to stand up for the animals of our world and speak for them. it is unfair that poachers get away with these cruel crimes when it affects us not just world wide but also in our future generation, and if this continues it could cause an imbalance in our biodiversity and our food chain but its also wrong to just kill animals and tear them apart for spear parts and for human convenience, there for i believe that the united nations should take a stand to stop this from continuing.

      We can't just kill all of our animals. As a species, we share the planet with them and it is our job to look after them, or at least not kill them.

      I love animals :) plus it messes up the food chain if a species is killed.
