Stop the donkey trade scandal!

To Environment Ministers Binilith Mahenge of Tanzania, Sam Cheptoris of Uganda, Tshekedi Khama II of Botswana and ministers across Africa:

The trade in donkey skins could drive them to the brink of extinction in many African countries. We welcome your steps to curb this deadly trade -- and call on you to urgently submit donkeys for a CITES Appendix III listing to ensure their protection.

Stop the donkey trade scandal!
Morris called his donkeys by their names, working with them at the market in Nairobi. Then thieves came, slaughtered and skinned them -- to feed China’s addiction to a 'miracle' elixir called 'ejiao', made from donkey hides.

Across Africa, families like Morris's and entire communities are waking to find the animals they rely on stolen and taken to shoddy slaughterhouses to be brutally killed. It sounds crazy -- but donkeys could disappear in many countries across the continent! Fortunately, there's a new plan to save them, and our global community can be key to make it real!

Tanzania and other countries are already acting to restrain donkey-killing, and they have the power to request protection measures at the global body in charge of endangered species. But they will only do it if we show the world stands with them on donkey protection. Join now.
