Stop Wildlife Crime, Starting with You

Stop Wildlife Crime, Starting with You

    1. Sponsored by

      World Wildlife Fund

Wildlife crime is deadly serious. It’s now the most urgent threat to three of the world’s best-loved species — elephants, rhinos and tigers.

Illegal wildlife trade isn't just a foreign issue — it's thriving right here on U.S. soil. This past July, two New York City jewelers pleaded guilty to having more than $2 million worth of illegal ivory on sale. And in February, seven people in the Los Angeles area were arrested with dozens of illegal rhino horns and millions of dollars in cash and gold.

Organized wildlife crime hurts people too. Criminal kingpins don’t hesitate to use deadly force, intimidate communities and corrupt officials in order to get what they want.

You can be part of the solution. Buying illegal wildlife parts creates demand, and you may be an unwitting part of this vicious cycle. By asking questions and getting the facts before you buy any wildlife part or product, you can ensure that you are not buying into this outrage.

Sign the pledge now to never buy illegal wildlife parts and join World Wildlife Fund’s fight against wildlife crime.

      Once these species are extinct, you can't bring them back. But all animals deserve to live free and be treated with respect. Humans wouldn't want to be hunted then shot, or kept penned up in a cage and mistreated!!

      Because we humans need to understand that animals are not made for being our pray and that we have an obligation to save the rich wild life - instead of terminating it.
