More than hundreds of people catching and trading Tokay geckos in northeast India because of its increasing demands of gecko meat from China , Indonesia, Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries. Its has become a booming business. Many Asian people believe that consuming geckos meat can cure HIV, diabetes , cancer, impotency etc etc..This is 200 % lie ..a blind superstitious belief. It has scientifically proven that there is no such thing in the meat which can be used as cure. Its a hoax & the ruthless smugglers have found an easy way of making money. Please help in raising my voice to the world & ask Indian government to take action before gecko's get totally wiped out & extinct. Your voice will definitely make a difference by supporting this cause.

Because we demand to the Government of India to Stop Killing & Hunting " Tokay Geckos" and stop this horrendous & hideous business of smuggling gecko meat to other Asian countries. Indian Government should take this matter seriously & put an end to it ASAP before it gets too late & Extinct . Gecko  are endangered species and have almost become extinct in many north east part of India. Government & other officials are not taking this matter seriously & are overlooking the mass killing just because its a reptile. 

I hope by the support of all wonderful & caring people , my voice can be reached to the right people who can make a difference & establish a strict law on killing such endangered species. 

Thank you!
