It is hard to believe that petitions like this one still circulate it means there are still humans with such low perception and corrupted values it is truly unbelievable that we humans portray our self as most advanced yet capable of the lowest tolerance and behavior among the nature.

when you have humans that, for the almighty dollar or ruple or whatever,that have no concerns for protected wildlife or raping of the environment or humans such as John Browne then you will continue to have this unacceptable behavior from these "humans"

Tom Sky: Please post in your newspaper connections: "The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality." Arthur Schopenhauer, "The Basis of Morality." (I have more quotes?)

Signed. We have a piano with ivory keys. We would never purchase ivory but it's been in the family for many decades, and has been passed down from our great grandmother. It is a horrible, archaic trade that NEEDS to stop, but I will continue to play on the piano, as to throw it away or sell it would only further diminish the importance of those poor dear creatures who perished in order for it to be created.
I don't mean to detract from this grave issue but this is a similar issue I'd like...

Yes!!! the govornment needs to shoot to kill on site above that they need to find out who is funding these poaching. Find the culprit and let justice handle them

Suchanh, it might BE the government who is funding the poaching. Certainly the government in the U.S. funds all kinds of horrible crimes...truly, you might want to check in to that.

Janice is correct, i.e., there's little doubt that government corruption plays a significant role in poaching the world over, making the loss of innumerable species all but but impossible to stop.

Sadly, animals -- be they endangered or not -- are nothing more than a commodity to some. We need to make the price of poaching -- for the gunmen to the end consumers -- much larger than the reward. Until then, it will remain a seller's market.

AS sad as this may seem to the Western mind, some poachers do what they do because of the various "needs" of the same people who what to shoot them. If you have a family to feed and your livelihood has been taken from you (lost your farm to Monsanto, land no longer fertile trying to keep up with Western touted conventional farming. Killing elephants for their ivory or for any reason (including destroying them as a species due to habitat encroachment ) is abhorrent, but let's look beyond...

These Elephants are beautiful, intelligent family oriented animals. More over they are the largest living land animals on the planet.

Greedy money hungry evil people like circus owners, zoos across the globe have exploited these magnificient elephants since ages. Now the world has changed & those out dated stupid laws needs to be changed as well. Need to BAN all the Ivory products importing/exporting and selling/marketing or any sort. Otherwise those greedy morons will not stop the mass murder of these gentle giants. Every Government of their own country need to stand up for protecting the Elephants before it is too late. Also people need to know that Don't buy any kind of Ivory products at any time. Please support these majestic animals by any ways you can.

I love elephants and I love all animals. I detest that someone shoots an elephant or a rhino for the ivory.I wish somehow the tusks or horns could be removed without harming the animal and this eliminates someone killing the animal (illegal)for the ivory. I am so sad when I see the commercial on t.v. about the rhino mother dead and her baby grieving and crying for her. It hurts me so much.
