This petition has been started by Occupy for Animals on September 27, 2012.
Despite all our previous pleas to the CITES director and after several meetings of our Egyptian activist members with the responsible authorities, nothing much has changed inside the zoos and the animals in Egypt's seven governmental zoos continue to suffer terribly.
As our last resort, we are now turning to the President of Egypt asking him to intervene and to appoint a person to specifically ensure that the changes needed are carried out as soon as possible.

By signing our petition, the letter that you can read below will be sent instantly to the President of Egypt.
We thank you very much, in advance, for signing our petition and for speaking up for the poor animals who are imprisoned in the governmental zoos of Egypt.
