Sign the Petition to

Edna Molewa, Minister of Environmental Affairs

This petition is talking about the issue happening in your country known as the ivory trade. Poaching for ivory trade is illegal in ever country and state in the world, it is also in your country. The poachers for ivory trade are only doing this for money in their pockets. Elephants are well on their way to extinction in the next 10 or so years. There are 450,000-700,000 elephant left in the world and in every 15 minutes there is 1 more elephant killed. Elephants are only killed for their ivory, this should be a permanent illegal action to do.

Edna it is important if you were to take this issue into consideration and try to fix this problem, that the best way for this to happen would be to jail the poachers, fine the poachers and even death sentence the poachers. Approximately 22,000 elephants die each year because of poachers.

This action is needed because everyday elephants are being killed, it’s so very often that it happens. It won’t be very long until there is no more elephants left to live in your country. There’ only 2 reasons why they get killed, it’s because a) money and b) their ivory. Their ivory should not be sold for money. The elephants have done nothing to humans.

This action of doing something about the ivory trade will help because it will get poachers to stop from going out and hunting for ivory. It will get the word around so that no one will continue buying the tusks from the ivory trade. Only few elephants are left to live and they are going quickly.

You as a person apart of the environmental affairs should do something about this horrific act that poachers are doing, you are in the position to make a difference about the ivory trade. Think about the harsh pain that the elephants have to go through, imagine how much pain they are in. All that the ivory trade is about is money. There is a lot of profits that can be made, but what if it was yourself that was in that position? Stop this from happening before it’s too late.

Yours sincerely,
Brayden Thomas

The reason why requesting this action is important because if it gets changed with the laws towards the poaching it will eventually stop everything. You as the Minister of Environmental Affairs should take a lead into this issue and change the laws towards animal poaching. This petition should be read and raise awareness because something needs to be done about it. This petition is you because you are the person who could make a change about the laws of ivory trade.
