US government please put pressure on China to eliminate Rhino and Lion trade

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

Simply put, Rhino's are going extinct because of poachers. The recent decision by China to lift the ban on Rhino parts for suspect traditional medicines will only exacerbate that problem until they are gone forever. The world cannot sit idly by while a greedy few wipe out the last of a species. We must put pressure on China to reverse this selfish and shortsighted policy.

Thank you Brent for highlighting this issue, and providing these gruesome yet necessary images to show the grim reality of the status quo.
