petition: Save Baby Tusker Isira from becoming a victim of wildlife crime!

Honourable Prime Minister of Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister intends on visiting “Kataragama” shrine venerating a local Hindu deity in south-east Sri Lanka. Kataragama shrine is a major pilgrimage area frequented by those of multiple faiths in Sri Lanka (predominantly the Hindu and Buddhist communities) and hosts an annual two-week long perahera (pageant) with parading elephants who are victims of the abusive captive elephant trade, where a vow has evidently been made to donate a baby elephant/tusker to the shrine.

This is purely a political move with baby elephant smugglers and politicians being part of an established “wildlife criminal network” in operation that has now been exposed and has served purely commercial purposes.

We, thus, request our Honourable Prime Minister to prevent donating any elephants for captivity to Kataragama or elsewhere, and to rise above the traps laid by the “wildlife criminal network” of elephant smugglers and their proponents. Instead, let us cherish, protect and nurture the wealth of flora and fauna which the island of Sri Lanka has been blessed with – for the benefit of future generations of all sentient beings!
