Goal: 30,000 Progress: 23,747
Sponsored by: The Rainforest Site

A simple social media search puts on display this reality: trophy hunting is posing massive threats to animal populations.

After losing close to 40% of their population in just decades, giraffes are now in danger of becoming extinct because of hunters and climate change.

Institutions like the Africa Hunt Lodge are allowing tourists to both hunt and harvest wild animals like the Monster South African Giraffe. On their own website, they boast about how anyone can come and kill these precious animals saying, "Year round we offer hunts for awesome trophy giraffe."

With such casual attitudes towards killing wild animals, it is no surprise that giraffes have now been categorized under the "vulnerable" status. If trophy hunting like this continues to be a business model and a popular attraction, more animals than just the giraffe are going to inch closer and closer to extinction.

If we want this heinous act to be stopped, we must call upon the International Union for Conservation to ensure complete protection of vulnerable animals. Sign below to help end trophy hunting of giraffes!

Dear Director General Inger Anderson,

As the Director General of the International Union for Conservation of Nature, it is your responsibility to protect the animals of our planet from extinction. With the power you have available at your position, preservation of vulnerable species should be paramount to the IUCN.

People are journeying to Africa for the sole purpose of hunting animals, especially ones that are particularly rare, for their own gratification and glorification. Hunting giraffes purely for sport and/or trophies is simply unacceptable. Many will argue that the cost of licensures for this particular "sport" help keep hunters to a minimum, but in reality any vulnerable animal that is killed for a trophy is putting the population in danger.

Unless more efforts are made to protect vulnerable and endangered species from being hunted altogether, the giraffe populations will continue to decline even further towards extinction.

Director, I'm begging you to please ensure that there is complete protection for threatened animals from trophy hunting.
