MY NOTE: My friend Honey sent me this petition that I cannot ignore, especially since I love giraffes. Please consider signing the petition. Thanx, ellensue
P.S. The message willbleed into the right hand margin. 

Dear friends,

Tess Talley killed this giraffe for fun.

She smiles in front of his dead body and calls it a “dream hunt”! It’s simply unexplainable why someone would be allowed do this. But we NOW have an unprecedented chance to make it much harder for Tess and anyone else from killing giraffes like this. 

In weeks, countries from across the world are meeting for a crucial global wildlife summit. And for the first time ever, Kenya has proposed to put giraffes onto the list of protected species. This would be a game-changer and make such horrific hunts much less profitable to carry out! And it’s urgently needed because the Giraffe population is already down by 40%.

No one should murder animals just for fun. Let’s all sign on now with one click, and then let’s make sure we share this with everyone we know!

Click here and let’s get giraffes the protection they deserve!

To all governments at CITES:
“We call on you to add giraffes to the list of protected species at CITES, launch and fund an Africa wide Giraffe Action Plan that would recover their population and protect their habitat, and support local communities living alongside our tallest friends left in the animal kingdom.”

Click here and let’s get giraffes the protection they deserve!

Here’s how Tess Talley explains the rightness of her action: “Animals have no rights as they are animals not humans. Therefore you can’t murder them.

She says that, likely knowing that giraffes are highly intelligent, emotional animals — who spend their evenings humming to each other to communicate.

So if you disagree that they should be killed for fun, and believe that they should actually be protected from such game hunts — then join us and let’s win them protection at this years CITES summit in May, the most important global conference on this issue.
So far, giraffes have gotten little attention, but with their population continuously dropping — it’s high time we ring the alarm bells, make this petition go viral and have our governments act on our behalf!

Click here and let’s get giraffes the protection they deserve!

Life on Earth is so precious. And yet, some still think it’s all just a game and it’s the right thing to go and shoot animals for fun. The Avaaz community has stood up together when Cecil the Lion was killed or when Donald Trump tried to re-open the import of animal trophies — let’s do it once again for our tallest friends left in the animal kingdom!

With hope and determination,

Christoph, Sarah, Martyna, Risalat, Joseph, Rosa, Jenny and the rest of the Avaaz team
