Speak Out for Giraffes
We, the undersigned, urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect giraffes under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Wild giraffe numbers have plummeted, decreasing from at least 150,000 in 1985 to fewer than 98,000 in 2015. That's a massive, unsustainable decline -- and it's made worse by a grisly trade of giraffe body parts. Listing giraffes under the ESA would end the unpermitted importing of giraffe parts and encourage other countries to ban giraffe trophy imports too.
