Over 225,000 people have signed the Change.org petition calling for an ivory ban in Canada. The goal is to reach 300,000. Please add your name to this petition in support of this initiative, and send the letter below to Canada's lawmakers.
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. Poachers and militias also routinely kill the rangers protecting these animals. Domestic markets of ivory undermine the conservation of elephants. It’s time for Canada to stop trading in ivory and become #ivoryfreecanada.
