Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • There has been an unprecedented spike in illegal wildlife trade across the world in recent years, which is threatening to overturn decades of conservation successes, especially for key species like rhinos, elephants and tigers.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to ban the importation of animal "trophies", mounted or unmounted.
