We thank you in anticipation.

The latest Avaaz campaign at https://secure.avaaz.org/en/1_million_to_ban_the_lion_trade_sa/?fqKVdcb&pv=25 has seen record levels of signatures. The message is clear. The world is saying stop!
President Zuma has a choice between saving our World Heritage Wildlife (such as the Big 5) and turning a blind eye to the excesses of his preferred South East Asia trading partners.
Stop the cruel trade in animal parts by sending a strong message to government that the millions of years of animal heritage is not worth exchanging for cheap, non-durable products that flood his country.
