Join Leonardo DiCaprio + WWF to Save Elephants
day, wild elephants, rhinos and tigers are killed for their skins,
bones, tusks, horns and other body parts. The scale of illicit activity
is staggering, especially
in places like Thailand. Poachers and organized crime syndicates there
make millions of dollars a year in what is the largest unregulated ivory
market in the world.
But we can change that, and our time is now. I hope you will join me and
WWF in our campaign to stop wildlife crime through an effort called
"Hands Off My Parts."
Together we will mobilize people around the world to take action that
can make a real difference, like signing a petition to ban ivory sales
in Thailand. Although it is against the law to sell ivory from African

domestic elephants can be sold legally. As a result, massive quantities
of illegal African ivory are being laundered through Thai shops.
Take Action Today: Tell Thailand's Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to close this loophole by banning all trade of Thai ivory. (http://www.causes.com/banivory)
On March 3, world governments will convene in Thailand to discuss
wildlife trade as part of the global treaty called CITES, the Convention
on International Trade in Endangered Species.
Join hundreds of thousands of people who have already acted! Please
speak up for elephants--write to Prime Minister Shinawatra today (http://www.causes.com/banivory)!
Thank you for your support,
