Petition to Secretary-General, António Guterres, United Nations

United Nations: BAN Trophy Hunting. STOP Poachers. END Imports.

Ban International Travel for Hunting. More than 7,520,270,000 (billion) humans on Earth. Two-thirds of all animal species are being wiped out. 100,000 elephants killed in the last 3 years. Too many species with once robust populations now reduced to a few thousand, a few hundred or even less. Humans are rapidly destroying the natural world in a blood-soaked pursuit of false-power, ego, ignorance and stupidity. We are witnessing The Great Animal Extinction, the animal holocaust caused entirely by soulless humans. Tigers, elephants, bears, rhinoceros, wolves, leopards, jaguars, cheetahs, gorillas, orangutans, so many bird species, sea life, are on the brink of extinction, and in a few years will be gone. The list is frighteningly long. Wild animals we love are being massacred at a terrifyingly rapid rate of destruction. Extinction is forever. EXTINCTION IS FOREVER!Natural habitat destruction, climate-change and greed are BIG problems, but the worst and most grotesque offenders are vile poachers and mentally diseased trophy hunters. These killers are an appalling example of mental sickness. They are aided by companies that profit from killing these beautiful creatures. These businesses & clubs are guilty of lobbying governments to let them break the law by importing exotic animals and their body parts. They must be stopped right NOW. It's going to be too late. We must act right now! Because there is so little time left to save the Earth's great land and sea animals.  Actions taken by organizations and individuals have helped but are no longer enough to stop the massacre. We must act today, we must tip the balance for the animals!  WE MUST BE THEIR PROTECTORS.What will the world look like if you do nothing? Do something. Please sign the petition and share it with everyone. It will be hand delivered to the United Nations. I thank you. The animals thank you. Mother Earth thanks you.

Petition to President Widodo, Siti Nurbaya Bakar

Shut down the Bandung Zoo now!

"WE MUST KEEP UP THE PRESSURE!". Please visit petition updates below and http://behindbarsbandungzoo.blogspot.com/ for further information  Note: I am keeping this petition in it's original format for historical purpose and because it is a fact that the sun bears were starving and for all the other animals of Bandung Zoo who are being kept in captive misery and exploitation. The second video from this link https://behindbarsbandungzoo.blogspot.com/2017/11/2016-may-video-captured-of-starving-sun.html showed that Kardit was, indeed eating his own feces! For those of you who may have missed my updates, on October 9th 2017, I posted an update about the sun bears https://www.change.org/p/president-widodo-shut-down-the-bandung-zoo-now/u/21627505 I am posting an addendum here for your convenience ... the sunbears are now being fed as stated in this October 9th update. They are being fed because all of you animal heroes signed and shared this pressure campaign. The sun bears and I thank you animal heroes! If you have been following my updates, you will also know that the sun bears are not the only animals held in captive exploitative misery and we must continue to fight for all of them, giving them a voice by signing and sharing this petition. Please take some time to read through all updates to keep yourselves informed and up to date. As always, thank you for advocating for the animals of Bandung Zoo. The Petition: Sun Bears kept in the Bandung Zoo are so hungry they eat their own feces. One of the zoo’s giraffes suddenly died and was found to have 40 pounds of plastic trash in its stomach. The Bandung Zoo has been coined Indonesia’s “death zoo” and must be shut down immediately. Perhaps the most upsetting was the recent loss of Yani, a 34-year-old Sumatran elephant, who was visibly weeping when she died shackled on the ground. She had been sick and neglected for too long. Yani’s species is critically endangered and she was one of about 2,800 of these majestic animals left. Tourists often report that the confined animals look emaciated and weak. The zoo is overcrowded and doesn't have a veterinarian on hand, so when animals fall ill they are left to suffer like Yani. These are not the only horrific events to have occurred within the zoo, and won’t be the last. Join me in imploring the President of Indonesia and his Minister of Environment and Forestry to shut down this zoo and relocate these animals to a conservation or sanctuary where they can be taken care of. Boycott all zoos and boycott Indonesia. "We are the Spartacus for the voiceless" Please sign and share the following 2 petitions as they linked to this petition and thank you for advocating for the poor animals 1) https://www.change.org/p/minister-of-forestry-and-environment-siti-nuraya-bakar-shut-down-indonesia-zoos-association-pkbsi 2) https://www.change.org/p/boycott-tourism-to-cruel-indonesia-now We need your help. Please consider donating. Every dollar helps. thx https://www.gofundme.com/sunbearsindonesia

Petition to Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the United States, President Nicolas Maduro, World Organization of Zoos and Aquariums WAZA

Send Ruperta, the elephant starving at Caricuao Zoo, Venezuela, to sanctuary in Brasil NOW

The food crisis in Venezuela can not be ignored by the rest of the world. Ruperta, the elephant at the Caricuao Zoo in Venezuela, is an innocent victim of this crisis. This proposal asks for help to save this fellow citizen of the planet and to call attention to the problem of hunger in Venezuela that hurts both human beings and animals like Ruperta. This proposal is not meant to be political, but humanitarian in its intent.  Let us help Ruperta the elephant and all of Venezuela to overcome the hunger crisis. Let us show our solidarity, our compassion, and goodwill. If we call ourselves good people, then we must do something. El problema del hambre en Venezuela es algo que no podemos ignorar. Ruperta, la elefanta en el zoológico de Caricuao en Venezuela, es una víctima más de esta crisis. Esta propuesta pide ayuda para salvar a este ser vivo y busca también llamar la atención a la crisis alimenticia que sufre Venezuela. Esta propuesta no tiene un fin político. Esta propuesta sí tiene un objetivo humanitario. Ayudemos a Ruperta y a toda Venezuela a superar el hambre. Mostremos nuestra solidaridad, compasión y buena voluntad. Si de verdad somos buenas personas, tenemos que hacer algo.
