Petition: Urge Vietnam and China to Ban Lion Bone Wine – Lions Including Females and Cubs are Being Killed to Supply the Asian Market

Villagers in Zimbabwe are reported to be working with Chinese poachers to exhume lion skeletons, according to a report in New Zimbabwe.com

Lion bones fetch a high price in Asia as the bones are processed into wine that sells for up to $20,000 a bottle.

Villagers around Hwange National Park, the home of Cecil the Lion who was slain by a trophy hunter earlier this year, exhume lion skeletons that have been buried after being killed during trophy hunts.

Because of the huge money to be made in the illegal trade poachers are now targeting female lions and cubs. Females and cubs are not part of the lucrative male trophy hunting.

The allegations are supported by a report compiled by WWF, IUCN and the international wildlife monitoring network, Traffic.

Lions deserve so much better.

Will you join me in urging China and Vietnam to ban lion bone wine to stop the poaching? Please sign and share the petition.

Say no to a school in Namibia raffling off the life of a rare desert elephant to huntersA school in Namibia is raffling tickets to win an elephant trophy hunt, which will end in the slaughter of one of Namibia’s rare desert elephants.

The hunt, which is being raffled by Gobabis Gymnasium, is scheduled to take place in November 2014.

According to the Conservation Action Trust, there are only about 100 desert elephants left in Namibia, including just 18 adult males.

Namibia’s desert elephants were nearly wiped out by poachers before the international ivory ban was first established in 1989.
