Support Australia's ivory & rhino horn ban today!

The illegal wildlife trade is a multi-billion dollar business and the fourth most lucrative transnational crime after drugs, weapons and human traffic. This is a global problem that requires bold action. Each year, at least 20,000 African elephants are illegally killed for their ivory and more than 7,000 rhinos have been killed in the past decade. Poachers and militias also routinely kill the rangers protecting these animals. It’s time for the international community to close the remaining legal loopholes that help facilitate the illegal trade.


1.) Join together with NGO For the Love of Wildlife to send a letter to Australia’s Prime Minister to end the ivory and rhino horn trade.

FLOW also encourages concerned individuals to call the Prime Minister’s office on (02) 9327 3988 (International callers +61 2 9327 3988) and Minister for Energy and Environment, Josh Frydenberg at either his electoral office on (03) 9882 3677 (International +61 3 9882 3677) or Ministerial office (02) 6277 7920 (International +61 2 6277 7920).

2.) Request a new e-petition with the Parliament of Australia.

3.) If you are Australian, write or call your local representative and ask your representative to support the ivory and rhino horn ban initiative.

4.) Attend upcoming Public Hearing and show support.
