The U.S. Banned Live Elephants and Trophy Hunting Imports. The European Union Must Follow Suit!

The United States has taken a groundbreaking step by banning the import of elephant hunting trophies, signaling a monumental win for global wildlife conservation. This action is a beacon of hope, proving that change is possible when we stand up for our planet's majestic animals. Now, it's our turn in the European Union to follow this path of compassion and make a stand against trophy hunting imports, just like France, Belgium, and the Netherlands have already bravely done.

Sign the petition to demand the European Union Directorate-General for Environment officially ban trophy hunting imports once and for all!

The heart of the matter is simple: animals like African elephants, with their deep family bonds and crucial role in their habitats, are being hunted to the brink of extinction. Their numbers have plummeted by over 60% since 1978, a devastating blow not just to them but to the biodiversity of our planet. 

The United States has recognized this tragedy and has acted by making it harder for trophy hunters to celebrate their kills. It's a move that not only protects these gentle giants but also sets an example for the rest of the world. The European Union, with its powerful voice and moral authority, is in a prime position to lead by example and protect these vulnerable creatures from becoming mere trophies. 

By saying no to trophy imports, we can save countless lives and show the world that the European Union values compassion over cruelty.
