Educate China: demanding ivory leads to 1000s of elephants killed each day.

    1. Petition by

      Anna Larsen

Because of the high demand for ivory in Asia, African countries are forced to kill thousands of elephants daily for the ivory of their tusks for a high price. When one elephant is killed, the rest of the elephants in the herd gather around to mourn the deceased elephant and stroke it with their trunks. The hunters use this opportunity to kill the gathered elephants as well. With education, I believe that people, especially in Asia, who treasure ivory will realize that demanding the product will cause much more harm than help. Sign this petition to stop cruelety towards these innocent creatures!

      Chinese children must be educated about the senseless killing of elephants for their ornamental ivory. The only way to stop the poaching is to stop the demand before it's too late and these beautiful, intelligent creatures are gone forever.

      Elephants are intelligent and feel pain no different to us. They are not sadistic or greedy which makes them superior to us in two important ways.

      I recently found out about how bad things are for the wildlife in Africa at the moment. To think Elephants will be extinct in 10 years is shocking. All animal lovers worldwide need to be made aware that poaching has changed , it is no longer how I naively imagined it to be with one or two elephants getting picked off by big game hunters , or local tribesman . The brutal truth is far from this , Hundreds of elephants can be killed in one go by poisoning a water pool with cyanide or by using Helicopters and guys armed with nightvision and automatic weapons , and this of course is all going on INSIDE the National Parks !! , To hear that 70% of Forest Elephants have been slaughtered for their Ivory is so sad. I fear it is already to late.
