Donald Trump

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature recently updated its assessment of Africa's giraffes from "vulnerable" to "critically endangered", meaning that Africa's giraffes might soon struggle to survive in the wild. But despite these dire warnings, the Trump Administration has refused to add the giraffe to the Endangered Species List, which would help track and curb imports of giraffe bones, trophies, and increase funding for conservation efforts.

The Trump Administration's decision to ignore conservation advice and their subsequent refusal to list the giraffe as endangered will have grave consequences for the giraffe, including possible extinction. The United States should not stand idly by and allow thousands of US imports of giraffe parts every year, without any regulation, while giraffes are on a path to extinction.

Donald Trump, we ask that you immediately add the giraffe to the endangered species list.

Signed,

Protect Endangered Species
