DON'T SHOOT AFRICA'S LAST ELEPHANTS! #DontShootElephants #Botswana

  • van: Ed Goncalves
  • ontvanger: HE Mokgweetsi Masisi, President of Botswana

BACKGROUND

Botswana is the last safe haven for Africa's elephants. It's a refuge for ONE THIRD of the species' remaining population. This is in large part thanks to a BAN on trophy hunting.

Now, though, the country's Parliament wants to make trophy hunting LEGAL. Botswana's President has launched a public consultation.

Make your voice heard by signing this petition – BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

PETITION:

"We strongly urge His Excellency Mokgweetsi Eric Keabetswe Masisi, the President of the Republic of Botswana, to keep the current ban on the trophy hunting of elephants in place.

Trophy hunting brings a cruel death for the target animal, and does little to benefit local communities or support wildlife conservation.

Elephant populations have fallen dramatically in recent years, including in neighbouring countries where trophy hunting is permitted.

Botswana is now the best hope for the survival of this magnificent creature. Losing the African Elephant would be a conservation disaster for Botswana, Africa and the world.

We very much hope you will demonstrate your, and Botswana's, continued global leadership in helping preserve the African elephant for future generations by ensuring the trophy hunting ban remains in place."
