Let's Save Africa's Giraffes

To all governments at CITES:

We call on you to add giraffes to the list of protected species at CITES, launch and fund an Africa-wide Giraffe Action Plan that would recover their populations and protect their habitat, and support local communities living alongside our tallest friends in the animal kingdom.

Tess killed this giraffe for fun.

She grins behind his dead body in this shocking viral photo -- but right now, we have a precious chance to turn this tragedy into a lifeline for giraffes everywhere! 

In weeks, countries from across the world will meet for a crucial global wildlife summit. And for the first time ever, five African countries have proposed adding giraffes to the list of protected species. As the first step in a global action plan to save them, this would be a game-changer. And it’s urgently needed because the giraffe population is already down by 40%.

Sign now, and then share this widely to help make the senseless killing of this beautiful animal a turning point for giraffes everywhere!
