Sign the Petition to Obama

A coalition of conservation organizations penned an open letter to President Obama calling for Obama for a promised ban on ivory trade in the U.S.

The letter is a response to the President’s recent National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking, which acted as a proposed ban on ivory trade. Add your voice!
