For every 1,000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to Congress, asking them to draft legislation that will provide funding and political help to prevent the extinction of giraffes.

Update 3/16/17: We have sent the first letter to Congress with 1,000+ of your signatures. We will continue to send letters every 1,000 signatures. Thank you!

Over the past 30 years, the giraffe population has dropped nearly 40%. With illegal hunting, habitat loss and environmental changes these mammals are being slowly pushed to extinction.

This decrease in giraffe population will continue until we do something to stop it. With funding and political help, these animals could be preserved. There is currently no legislation to help prevent this extinction.

“Whilst giraffes are commonly seen on safari, in the media and in zoos, people – including conservationists – are unaware that these majestic animals are undergoing a silent extinction,” said Julian Fennessy, co-chair of the IUCN’s giraffe and okapi specialist group. “It is timely that we stick our neck out for the giraffe before it is too late,” he said.

Sign this petition and help us tell Congress that the people want the protection of giraffes put into place.

EVery living thing is precious. Our animals are not our right to murder and destroy. We are all in this world together, just as precious.
