THE UNIQUE ADAPTED DESERT DWELLING ELEPHANTS NUMBERS ARE ON THE DECLINE , AND THEY ARE DOWN TO LESS THAN 100 INDIVIDUALS AGAIN, THEIR EXISTENCE IS THREATENED.

THEY ARE GOING EXTINCT.

10% OF THE WHOLE POPULATION OF THE VERY UNIQUE ADAPTED DESERT DWELLING ELEPHANTS, IN THE WORLD, WILL BE KILLED BY TROPHY HUNTERS.

WE NEED THE USA GOVERNMENT TO BAN THE IMPORT LICENCES URGENTLY .

THIS IS UNSUSTAINABLE HUNTING.

THERE IS A GLOBAL OUTCRY AND PEOPLE DO NOT WANT THESE RARE AND BEAUTIFUL UNIQUE ELEPHANTS KILLED FOR TROPHIES WHICH, WILL RISK THEIR FUTURE SURVIVAL.

MORE THAN 35,000 AFRICAN ELEPHANTS WERE MASSACRED BY POACHERS LAST YEAR ALONE. THE AFRICAN ELEPHANTS ARE GOING EXTINCT ; MORE THAN THE WHOLE DESERT POPULATION OF ELEPHANTS ARE KILLED EVERY DAY IN AFRICA. THE NAMIBIAN DESERT ELEPHANTS ARE IN MORTAL DANGER FROM THE ISSUING OF HUNTING PERMITS

AND BOOKINGS ARE BEING TAKEN TO KILL MORE IN 2014/ 2015.

BAN ALL AMERICAN IMPORTS FROM NAMIBIA NOW !

THESE RARE AND PRECIOUS UNIQUE ADAPTED DESERT DWELLING ELEPHANTS NEED OUR PROTECTION OR ELSE WE WILL LOSE THEM FOREVER !

THIS IS NOT SUSTAINABLE HUNTING THEY SHOULD NOT BE HUNTED BY ANYONE , THERE ARE ONLY 100 IN THE WORLD !!
