I don't, as a rule, normally get involved with 'online' petitions - too many of 'em - but this one is for a valid and little known cause.
Was alerted to it by Beth, at Living a quotable Life.
"Only elephants should wear ivory".
The illegal poaching of elephants is escalating and unless ivory sales are permanently banned, it is likely that these amazing creatures will no longer roam the earth. Now is the time to urge international leaders to permanently ban the sale of ivory once and for all!
It is, actually, interesting, since the major 'buyers' are 'asian'. It would be interesting to canvass the opinions of the Chinese population/leaders - to find out how they would feel/react if their beloved Panda were to suddenly disappear.
Am not holding breath, as the 'sale' of opium/heroin is 'banned' .. but there seems, to me, a marked difference between the 'production' entities - a poppy plant and an incredibly intelligent animal.
