Sign the Petition to

Amran Sulaiman

I am campaigning on behalf of the tigers in Indonesia whose numbers are decreasing rapidly because of their poor treatment. This includes the reduction in their natural habitat that is being cleared by developers as well poaches who use parts of the tiger in herbal medicine. The tigers are also being used by some locals as entertainment, being kept on chains and caged as a tourist attraction.

I want you to increase the amount of land that they need to live freely in and ban all hunting of tigers. I also want you to ban the keeping of tigers as pets or attractions.

This is important because you need to preserve these beautiful animals before they become extinct.
Do you realise that there are less than 3000 tigers left in the wild. If this continues then there will be nothing for our children’s children to see.
This should be the main reason that action is needed.
There should be a ban on poachers who hunt the tigers for their export and by-products. There needs to be no money paid for those who trade in tiger export.
If you support penalizing those who deal in the trade by harsher jail times then you will be stopping them from making money from this industry.
Because of this petition you are raising awareness of the issue. But it is up to you now to take the opportunity to prove that you are serious about changing things and helping the tigers survive but only if you act now.
You are in a position of power as the minister of agriculture to make new laws that will protect them in the future. You can also make sure that there are new laws to punish those who are trading in the industry. It is your responsibility to act now and I urge you to take action.

Signed,

James Redman

You are the only person who can make a difference as you are responsible for agriculture which also covers animal welfare.

Names on a petition influence others because t shows that there are thousands of people who feel the same way who want to protect tigers as they are a beautiful animal.
