This petition is about showing support for the banning of the ivory trade. Although it is illegal, in many countries it still continues. The ivory trade is, for many people, a way of getting money and feeding their families. But it has to be stopped. As many as 36,000 African Elephants are being killed each year for their ivory. African Elephants are beautiful creatures and this HAS to be stopped.
