Kathleen Martin started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and 3 others
The Trump administration wants to start issuing permits for elephant trophy hunting.
I have been to Africa and have seen first hand the impact of hunting elephants for ivory. Dead elephant carcasses left to rot with only the tusks taken is a sight no one should have to endure. A gross waste of life and resources for the environment and community. I cannot stand silent as this change is made.
Elephants are a majestic animal and are a protected species. To condone killing this animal for sport and importing the ivory and tusks into the US is a legacy I would prefer we not leave.
Please help me in sending a message that we will not sit idly by as these decisions are made. We will be proactive and use our voices to make it known we do not condone this and do not want a reversal of a ban that was put in place to protect this species.
