Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party Theresa May MP

Dear Mrs May,

My campaign is about the ivory trade and how it is causing the extinction of elephants in Africa and Asia. The world needs for you to stop all importing, exporting and selling of ivory in the UK and put a ban on the domestic sale of all antique ivory. Supporting me will stop the illegal selling and poaching of elephants in Africa and Asia and the funding of terrorism in the middle east.

The UK’s and the rest of EU are one of the biggest exporters of ivory in the world, especially to Asia. If you can stop your role in the killing of elephants the demand for antique ivory goes down. Less demand for the antique ivory means the price goes down and the poaching of elephants will quickly cease to exist. If this doesn't happen and you keep selling antique ivory elephants are most likely to become extinct.

Placing this ban on the UK will save the African and Asian elephants and ultimately save the Saharan desert. Elephants are known as a keystone species and without them, there are many reason the entire ecosystem would suffer without them.
Also this will stop the funding of terrorism as one of their main sources of income is the sale of illegal ivory.

You are in the greatest position to make a change in your country for the greater good and it only makes sense if you want to stay in that position. A recent poll in your country suggests 95% of your people would never want to buy ivory, even if it was antique. Be the Prime Minister your people want and make the best decision.

Yours sincerely,
Mitchell Radford

How this will help

This needs to happen now as Theresa May recently went back on a proposed ban for the sale of antique ivory.

Theresa May is in the greatest position to make a change in the UK for the greater good because she is the Prime Minister and has the power to make changes.

You, the people signing this petition can influence Theresa May as everyone knows she needs votes to stay in her position. And she knows as the Prime Minister she should listen to the needs and wants of her people.
