Graham Turner, CEO Flight Centre Limited

Dear Graham Turner,

Mr Turner, as the CEO of flight centre I would like you to raise awareness of canned hunting how we are supporting it in South Africa. It is a very important issue. We demand that you do not promote canned hunting as an option to participate in when traveling to Africa. Also we require you to warm tourists about walking and petting lions. We also believe that you are in a position to take action to address this serious issue

Action is needed to be taken against canned hunting because it is cruel to hand raise a lion cub, tame them to be around people letting them believe they have a home and then kill them when they are older, we are threatening the existence of lions. There are 30 000 lions left in the world today and in the last 30 years we have lost over 50% of the lion population. Lions are edging towards extinction very soon, if we keep this up.

Not promoting or advertising canned hunting to anyone traveling to South Africa, will help because it will make it harder for the carers of the lions to earn the funds to raise these cubs to adults and it will reduce the number of lions being hunted. Banning the advertising of canned hunting will reduce the amount of profit the ‘hunters’ make from selling tamed lions for a trophy.

As the CEO of flight centre you can make a massive change and help the innocent lions. Obviously it is time that action is taken against canned hunting. We ask that you ban the advertising of hunting in your agency, to reduce the number of people who support canned hunting without knowing. We also request that you warn tourists of the dangers of visiting farms. By doing this you would show the world that you actually care about the environment and animal rights. You need to put a stop to the advertising of lion farms to prevent this cruel ‘sport’ immediately

Yours sincerely,
Harley Wells

Sign this petition to convince Mr Turner, the CEO of Flight Centre that he can help make a difference for the lions by banning the advertising and promotion of hunting. If he puts warnings on travel brochures for South Africa warning people that walking with lions or even petting them could possibly support canned hunting, we may be able to reduce this atrocity.
