This came to me through The Petition Site where you can sign or create petitions and is sponsored by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) which works tirelessly to help save animals in crisis.
I thought that ivory was not allowed to be sold in the US and we could not purchase it. It was an opportunity to protect elephants around the world. But, apparently there is a loophole in the Endangered Species Act in the US.
This petition will help you send a message to President Obama to reform the US Ivory Trade regulations so that this cannot continue. As long as humans purchase ivory the poachers will kill the elephants. It is in our power to stop this by drying up a market so there is no profit to be made by those who are murdering elephants.
Sign the petition, write a blog, write a message on Facebook or Twitter to encourage others to add their voices. We are the ones who can stop this, the elephants are at the mercy of our actions.
Peace and Kindness,
