Save the Rhinos!
To the leaders of the European Union:
As concerned global citizens we call on you to push members of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species to save rhinos by immediately suspending trade in all rhino products. Furthermore, enforcement measures should be strengthened and consumer countries must honour their promises to run far-reaching public awareness campaigns. Your action today can end deadly poaching and save the species from extinction.

Fueling this devastation is a huge spike in demand for rhino horns, used for bogus cancer cures, hangover remedies and good luck charms in China and Vietnam. Protests from South Africa have so far been ignored by the authorities, but Europe has the power to change this by calling for a ban on all rhino trade -- from anywhere, to anywhere -- when countries meet at the next crucial international wildlife trade summit in July.
The situation is so dire that the threat has even spread into British zoos who are on red-alert for rhino killing gangs! Let’s raise a giant outcry and urge Europe to push for new protections to save rhinos from extinction. When we reach 100,000 signers, our call will be delivered in Brussels, the decision-making heart of Europe, with a crash of cardboard rhinos. Every 50,000 signatures will add a rhino to the crash -- bringing the size of our movement right to the door of EU delegates as they decide their position. Sign the petition on the right then spread this campaign widely.
