President Obama STOP Media Invisible Wealthy Entitled White Americans from pillaging Africa , who are representing one of the evilest and most corrupt industries in the world. Please create laws to Stop the killing of the last of the Land Giants and wild creatures on earth, being slaughtered for dishonest USA TV Hunting Channels and News Media Entertainment

HOW CAN THE AMERICAN TROPHY COLLECTORS BE TOTALLY MEDIA INVISIBLE ? AS THEY ARE DRIVING DEMAND FOR MORE TROPHIES , MASSACRING WILD ANIMALS OUT OF HELICOPTERS USING WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION FOR ENTERTAINMENT ? THIS IS TOTALLY DESTROYING THE ECOSYSTEMS IN AFRICA ?
TROPHY HUNTERS ARE KILLING IN A MULTI BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY, DOING FAKE CONSERVATION BACKED BY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS VIA CONGRESS FROM USAID AND THE WORLD BANK TO ENSURE THE WWF GIVES USA PRO- HUNTING LOBBY GROUPS , DSC , SCI AND NRA; ACCESS TO WILDLIFE IN AFRICA REGARDLESS OF THE FACT WE ARE LOSING THEM OFF THE PLANET FOREVER BECAUSE YOUR FUNDING IS ALWAYS CONDITIONAL AND AFRICAN GOVERNMENTS HAVE TO OFFER TROPHY HUNTING SO THE WILDLIFE POPULATIONS ARE NOW BEING COMPROMISED .

THIS MEANS THE USA'S BIG BUSINESSES ARE GOING TO DESTOY ALL THE WILDLIFE POPULATIONS IN LESS THAN 10 YEARS THROUGH FAILED 'CONSERVATION ' IMPOSED ON AFRICA .
MOZAMBIQUE - The World Bank’s International Development Association approved a $40 million grant to Mozambique to fund conservation efforts, including strengthening the country’s program of selling the rights to hunt wild animals.

TROPHY HUNTING HAS NEVER BEEN SO POPULAR AS WE ARE FACING THE WORST MASS EXTINCTION OF WILDLIFE NOT SEEN ON EARTH FOR 65 MILLION YEARS WHEN THE DINOSAURS WERE WIPED OUT AND NOW BECAUSE OF OVER HUNTING AND RECENT INTENSIVE POACHING WARS, WILDLIFE IS NOT RECOVERING .

AS THE WORLD IS STILL BLAMING THE POOR BLACK POACHERS FOR DESTROYING AFRICA THE USA IS NOT FACING ANY CONSEQUENCES , FOR 50 YEARS OF DAMAGE THROUGH TOTALLY UNREGULATED TROPHY HUNTING IN THE UNDEVELOPED , UNPROTECTED WORLD .


No one will mention the Trophy Hunters who are officially massacring from species that have less than 10 years on the planet, not even Sir David Attenborough .. Everyone is exclusively blaming the faceless Poor Black Poachers who are paid by the invisible , whilst we all can see what is happening here and no one is doing anything about it .

" David Attenborough has said Africa’s rhinos and elephants face extinction from poaching, possibly within a decade, calling on people to support the conservation charities who stand between those species and oblivion.
The pioneering wildlife broadcaster said the survival of Africa’s great beasts, known collectively as megafauna, was dependent on the interventions of governments and conservationists.
“I’m not going to say we don’t care about protecting rhinos or elephants or African megafauna. If you said ‘yes, they’re all going to die within the next 10 years’ you would stop trying to protect them and they would die within the next 10 years,” he said.http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/may/28/david-attenborough-calls-on-ordinary-people-to-he..." THE

MYTH OF TROPHY HUNTING AS CONSERVATION
A League Against Cruel Sports submission to Environment Minister, Elliott Morley MP December 2004
THE MOST POWERFUL FRIENDS ON EARTH
"With their financial and political might, this formidably powerful clique of hunters is shamelessly
promoting hunting as a form of conservation. Many poor governments are easily won over because it
offers such easy money – the bulk of which goes straight into their pockets."
http://www.league.org.uk/~/media/Files/LACS/Reference-material/League-Against-Cruel-Sports-2004-The-....

In only 50 Years we have lost 2 Thirds of all wildlife on earth !!! We are in serious trouble ALL THE KILLING HAS TO STOP NOW ! this is not about sentimentality this is about taking action to protect the world, especially vulnerable Africa, from massacring Americans becoming wealthy as they are destroying the planet .
Can humanity get any lower, watching the last of the wild things on earth dying for TV for Entertainment ?

Wealthy White Americans, part of exclusive clubs in the USA are massacring CRITICALLY ENDANGERED WILDLIFE in poor countries with NO HUMAN RIGHTS or WILDLIFE /ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION totally media invisible , the truth is NOT being told. And the facts are we are running out of time and killing is 'killing' plain and simple , our ancient species can not cope , they are not recovering from all this violence .

PLEASE READ THE WORDS OF THE ACTUAL PEOPLE FIGHTING POACHERS AND TAKING BULLETS TO SAVE THEIR WILDLIFE :-
‘OPEN LETTER TO COREY KNOWLTON’: Founder, Walk With Rangers; Quote:
"Sir, I have struggled to understand why SCI and DSC continue to put prices on the heads of our wildlife. It is laughable that they even think they have any right. The wildlife of a nation remains the sovereign property of its people. Would this not mean then, sir, that privatizing such public property would, in fact, be a gross violation of the rights of the African people? I will let you ponder over that for a while. We are in the wake of a crisis that has gripped our region. Poachers have decimated our herds, and Africa is no longer teeming with wildlife. You kind sir, have been duped into believing that your hunt will aid conservation in Africa.
It will not. Aside from gaining Namibia huge disrepute, it will go against the very fibre of what we are trying so hard to achieve – the protection and true management of our last wild things. It is also imperative to note here that local African communities do not eat rhino meat.”

PURE CORRUPTION
THE COMPLICATED CYCLE OF DECEIT AND THE SMOKE SCREENS, TO MAINTAIN A HUNTING STANCE, AS WE ARE FACING MASS EXTINCTION OF ALL THE AFRICAN WILDLIFE FROM THE NATURAL WORLD
This decisions to Over-Hunt the wildlife is funded and backed by the WWF: World Wildlife Fund who collate animal populations, CITIES: Convention on International Trade In Endangered Species, ICUN: International Union for Conservation of Nature and USAID.
Including: the American Pro-Hunting Lobby Groups: DSC: Safari Dallas Club, SCI: Safari Club International and NRA: National Rifle Association (of America); who are the largest Pro-Hunting Lobby Group in the United States.

The USA Pro- Hunting Lobby Groups, lobby the American Congress and USAID to ensure the flow of funding to WWF Hunting Projects.
In exchange WWF keeps a Pro-Hunting Stance, and the door open to hunt Protected and Endangered Species, and this is how they justifying it because the funding presently is conditional.
There are direct links between World Wildlife Fund and Dallas Safari Club because the USA Pro-Hunting Lobby Groups are actually determining the Hunting Policies in the African Countries to fulfil their own agendas first.
This is not conservation this is exploitation.


TROPHY HUNTING SERVES NO PURPOSE
There is NO Reason to Justify this 'massacring' being done by the USA White Trophy Hunters from exclusive clubs , other than raping and completely violating the African Countries for sadistic entertainment filmed for TV and corrupt News Channels; proven to be total propaganda . For Example ,CNN are paid by governments to mislead the public and pass off pure lies as news ! . Which would be illegal in the UK .


THE RICH WHITE-MAN'S SPORT IS OUT OF CONTROL AND NOT SUSTAINABLE BECAUSE WILDLIFE IS RACING TOWARDS EXTINCTION
White Americans TH are killing mostly in Africa. Trophy Hunting is clearly unregulated and out of control, everyone involved is profiting from the EXTINCTION OF THE RARE WILDLIFE, anyone else who is involved who cares; is threatened and gagged so the truth is never told .It is time the USA was removed from Africa and this legal occupation, land grabbing and legal poaching ceased immediately .



NOT ONE ORGANISATION PAID TO PROTECT WILDLIFE IS FULFILLING THEIR ROLE.
THE CORRUPTION HAS INFECTED THEM TOO BECAUSE THE PROFITS ARE TOO MUCH TO RESIST
Everyone who is paid to protect the African countries are NOT they are becoming wealthy on the complete destruction of the wildlife instead, which, is causing Ebola because the Food Chain is breaking down and the tribes are eating Bush Meat instead .

THE WORLD WILDLIFE FUND:
Director WWF in Africa : Chris Weaver 'Conservation Force ' is WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DALLAS SAFARI CLUB AND THEY ARE RUNNING THEIR OWN TROPHY HUNTING SAFARIS IN NAMIBIA AND SOUTH AFRICA at the same time the WWF are officially collating wildlife populations numbers .

Asking the WWF to 'officially collate wildlife populations numbers' in Africa , is the same as asking an alcoholic to look after a Wine Cellar and disclose in the shadows, how many bottles are left . Would you trust him ?
Please read the truth of what TROPHY HUNTING WWF, that is using charity donations .... To promote wildlife extinction CHRIS WEAVER WWF SA / NAMIBIA ....

" Though Dallas Safari Club and Conservation Force help support the Program, the primary support and technical assistance outside of MET comes from WWF’s LIFE Plus project. WWF’s LIFE Plus project has been funded by 34 million dollars in USAID and other donors from around the world. The project is in its 13th year. It began as “LIFE”, which means “Living in a finite environment.” At its second point of USAID funding it was designated “LIFE Two”. In its present, third stage of funding, the project is called “LIFE Plus”. The program stands as a model for poverty alleviation and natural resource conservation. Its success makes this hunter-friendly country even more exciting and inviting." Read More : https://www.conservationforce.org/wildafrica.html


USFWS AND CITES THE CORRUPTION CONTINUES
In 2010 CITES and the USFWS made it law to allow Namibia and South Africa to profit from 5 Black Rhinos each , that is 10 Black Rhinos every year that can be killed for trophies and imported into the USA regardless of one Rhino being killed every 11 hours from a population left of approximately 1700 in Namibia; from a world population of less than 4,000.

This ruling created in 2010 by CITES and USFWS is allowing the legal massacre of the Black Rhino on the brink of extinction , that are critically endangered, by USA Trophy Hunters.
This is born out of pure corruption and bribes and i am asking you to over turn this immediately because the preservation of wildlife needs to happen now and the massacring has to stop , this is NOT conservation it is exploitation and total sadistic destruction of an other man's continent.

USFWS AND CITES DEAL TO KILL 10 CRITICALLY ENDANGERED BLACK RHINOS, EVERY YEAR
FOR TROPHIES FROM A SPECIES ON THE BRINK OF EXTINCTION :
Last year one of the 5 permits issued to kill a Black Rhino to Namibia resulted in the Pregnant Black Rhino cow being killed instead of a so called none breeding male , they are running out of Rhinos to kill, but the money Namibia and South Africa are now each gaining is too much to resist , $ 350,000 Corey Knowlton paid and another paid $200,000 for two Black Rhino heads .
Resolution Conf. 13.5 (Rev. CoP14)
Establishment of export quotas for black rhinoceros hunting trophies

“THE CONFERENCE OF THE PARTIES TO THE CONVENTION
APPROVES
“the establishment of an annual export quota of five hunting trophies of adult male black rhinoceros from South Africa and five from Namibia:
AGREES that hunting trophies of the black rhinoceros are defined as the horns or any other durable part of the body, mounted or loose and that all parts to be exported should be individually marked with reference to the country of origin, species, quota number and year of export”: Please read more on the Link: “
http://www.cites.org/eng/res/13/13-05R14C15.php


‘OPEN LETTER TO COREY KNOWLTON’: Founder, Walk With Rangers; Quote:“In forty years of close association with black rhinoceros, I have NEVER known of a free ranging wild old male past his breeding period targeting, and killing, rhino females and calves but, rather, the odd fights have only, in my own experience, occurred amongst breeding competing males, as is common in other species.
In Africa old age is respected: by extension, it is un-African and basically unethical not to allow an old male that sired many calves a peaceful retirement, in the same way as breeding bulls in the cattle world are put out to pasture, not sent to the butcher, once they stop being productive.

Dear President Obama ,
The world is looking on in amazement and we are totally horrified , thinking is this the future for all the Land Giants on earth ? , being massacred to the brink of extinction deliberately and then killed by people like Corey Knowlton for TV Entertainment because individuals in the USA can pay for it and a USA audience likes it ? .

In the 1970's there were 65,000 Black Rhinos, now they are racing towards extinction because they are being killed for USA TV Entertainment. An ancient species that has been on this planet for over 13 million years is being wiped out by poachers and humiliated by USA White Trophy Hunters instead of being left to live out their natural lives, your laws and law makers are wiping them out , whilst bastardising the meanings of my language by calling total destruction 'conservation' .

The only true 'conservation' of the critically endangered Black Rhino species would be killing the Poachers and the Trophy Hunters first before they went near the African Wildlife , that is the correct definition of the word 'conservation' i mean .

The USA Hunting Channels need to be Banned they are driving demand for more and more wildlife like vampires .

This is important , all life on earth is connected and we can't watch Trophy Hunters killing on this planet any longer for profit and greed , especially now as we are facing Climate Change and Extreme Weather Events and over human populations which, is increasing pressure on the natural world .

Brave and dedicated individuals are risking their own lives to save the wildlife from Poachers in Africa . 'Poachers ' who have declared war on their wild animals. The same herds that are so easily killed by Trophy Hunters .

The USA in only 40 years has achieved near extinction of every Land Giant on earth , if the WWF were Bankers they would be Bankrupt , and the people living in Africa have no rights to stop USA Trophy Hunters massacring everything that moves.

What can we do to stop this disturbing and totally destructive trend being done by White Americans from the USA who collect Trophies of endangered wildlife for a hobby , who are killing critically endangered wildlife whilst destroying the fragile environments and ecosystems in Africa ?


We are losing the African Wildlife yet Corey Knowlton has managed to be given with one other , two Black Rhinos import Licences of the most critically endangered wildlife on earth , by the USFWS after a world outcry, of 150K who signed petitions and made comments on your government public pages .

Are we in the world helpless to stop this Wildlife Terrorism in Africa being committed by USA Trophy Hunters , are these people above the laws and immune from punishments , can they do exactly what they like indefinitely and pretend they are helping poor countries whilst they are clearly NOT because there is NO WILDLIFE LEFT? and Conservation practices presently being used now and in the past is NOT working ?

We have tried to petition your government USFWS to stop all the wildlife on the planet falling victim to USA corruption, peaceful protests using your democracy is not working because the people who are massacring and abusing wildlife in the undeveloped world are creating the laws in the USA in their favour to protect their investments because they have vested interests in the destruction and the extinction of wildlife in Africa. In other words leaving USFWS to protect wildlife on the planet is the same as leaving a bunch of pedophiles to run a primary school .

We are failing to protect Africa from the wealthy White Americans who are bribing and paying more and more money to have access to the rarest wildlife on earth to kill for fun and TV entertainment.

White Americans are given rewards by Dallas Safari Club, who sends members on sadistic tasks to access poor countries and to rape them of all their Wildlife and Land Giants on the brink of extinction so that each year status awards are given to these massacrers .

How can massacring wildlife in poor countries into extinction be legal ? how can you claim to be a Christian Country when your laws have no morals and are created to cause the most destruction possible to our shared planet ?

I have no words for how I feel about this total and complete abuse of trust being done by the USA in these undeveloped uneducated African Countries .

I can hardly believe this is happening in 2015 . it is like these Americans Trophy Hunters are the same as the barbaric perverts that massacred animals in the Colosseum in the Ancient Roman Empire 2,000 years ago . It is utterly discussing what they are doing in Africa and even more sick that Hunting Channels exist at all, which are clearly driving the demand for more and more rare wildlife victims.

Trophy Hunters are killing species on the brink of extinction for entertainment and if the wild animals are not endangered now they soon will be because the Over Hunting is too aggressive in Africa.

For over 40 years the wildlife has been seriously destroyed and not one USA President cares .

Now the African wildlife populations are not recovering and the destruction is creating too much human contact, wild animals are no longer learning from their elders because they are being killed , we are losing them all with all their traditions because the food chain is breaking down and the natural balance of their existence is broken because of all the violence they are experiencing whilst losing habitat .

Trophy Hunters are hanging out of helicopters using weapons of mass destruction killing the prime animals, the complete opposite of natural selection.
" “Elephants are highly prized among trophy hunters who can pay £10,000 (approx.$16,500) or more for a kill.”It turns out hunting animals may be more harmful than we thought, especially trophy hunting. It could be causing a kind of backward evolution, because the largest and most impressive animals, “prized” by hunters, are diminishing in some species, leading to a reduction in size and other disturbing changes in the remaining animals. In other words, the more robust members of certain species are disappearing, not by the process of “natural selection” but by hunting pressure. It’s as if hunters are selectively breeding animals in the wild by killing off the “trophy” animals, leaving the smaller and weaker individuals to breed."
https://howlingforjustice.wordpress.com/2012/06/26/its-survival-of-the-weak-and-scrawny/

With the evidence hanging in the USA homes of wealthy White Americans and in their Trophy Rooms the 'USA' s crimes against the planet is plain for all to see. As a display of wealth and status is this all you care about ?

There are more stuffed Africa Animals Trophies in the USA than there are wild animals alive and walking on earth , because the Trophy Hunting Industry has turned the planet into a disposable consumer product .

We have petitioned USFWS AND CITES and was told it is meaningless, so now we are petitioning you, President Obama, to show you how disgusted we are with the USA attitudes to Human Rights , Poor Countries and the USA's lack of respect for longevity and preservation of wildlife, in the ancient natural wilderness on the planet in the Developing World.
