Help Protect Elephants

Help Ensure Elephants Are Fully Protected in the U.S.!

As shocking as it is, the United States is the second largest market for ivory in the world. We have a responsibility to do everything we can to curtail the domestic demand for ivory that is fueling black markets and pushing elephants closer to the brink of extinction.

We must act now to send a clear message that the United States is serious about protecting elephants!

Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) you applaud its initiative to tighten controls on the commercial sale of ivory and eliminate domestic black markets – and urge them to ensure the regulations fully protect elephants!

We'll submit your name, zip, and comment to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. All comments become part of the public record.
