Every year billions of animals are inhumanely captured and killed to provide for your entertainment, and to make products for you to buy here and around the world. It’s called the international wildlife trade, and you can help stop it by avoiding products and experiences that come from these abused animals. Use the map to learn more and sign the pledge below!
African elephants are brutally slaughtered for their tusks, used to make expensive ivory trinkets. Rhinos face the same fate - their horns are used in traditional medicine, even though it has no proven value. Polar bears and lions are shot in their tracks, only to become wall trophies and rugs. Whales and dolphins are taken from the wild to perform tricks for humans, spending the rest of their lives in concrete pools or netted pens.
It’s tragic, and HSI is fighting the cruelty every day. You can help: don’t buy products that come from wild animals, or patronize establishments that exploit them. Explore our new interactive map that shows where some of the cruelty occurs and provides examples of the products and activities to avoid!
