Sign the Petition to

President Zuma

I wish to inform you of the desperate situation that is occurring to the magnificent wildlife because of the illegal practice of trophy hunting in South Africa. I believe that you have the power to help me stop this inappropriate and destructive practice. You have the power to influence others and to penalise people that take part in this disgusting and cruel act.

At the moment there are over 100 million animals in Africa getting killed every year and it is all because of trophy hunting and head hunting. I think there is no need for this slaughter of such beautiful creatures.

In the last 20 years 5 species have also become extinct because of hunting, including recently the West African Black Rhino. These unique species will never be able to walk the earth and are lost forever for future generation.

The 5 main animals that get killed for sport are lions, gorillas, giraffes, elephants and buffalo and if we don’t stop the slaughter we won’t have any of these animals as well. I am writing this petition in order to change the way that the animals live and so they have the right to walk around without being intimidated by hunters or rich, gun-crazed maniacs who kill things just for the fun of it with no regards for the animals.

This is a priority for all the people of Africa because it is happening right on your doorstep and the majority of it is in South Africa. You are in a unique position to take action and make a difference to the population of animals.
Yours sincerely,

You’re sincerely
Laine Smith
