Hugh needs your help
|Sign up to our petition|
I don’t know if you managed to catch my documentary series on BBC One, Saving Africa’s Elephants: Hugh and the Ivory War. If you missed it, you can still find it on BBC iPlayer here.
I am very much hoping that our films, combined with the united voice of the UK’s most dedicated conservation bodies and elephant scientists, will help to bring about the “total ban” on UK ivory that our Government has been promising us for over five years now. I’m convinced that that’s the only way to stop the corrupt Asian market from buying up our historic stocks of carved ivory. And we need to stop that. Otherwise we will continue to fuel both the legal and the illegal ivory trade, and we will remain complicit in the slaughter of Africa’s elephants.
If we can get it to 100,000 signatures, this petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.
If you would like a couple of quick reads that summarises the issues about UK Ivory that we raised in our films, you might want to have a look at this piece I wrote for the Daily Mirror, and the letter I co-signed to the Daily Telegraph.
For further information about the crisis, here are links to some of the many NGO’s who are supporting this petition:
Do join us. The more of us that speak up, the better the chances we’ll see action from the Government. And that really will help save Africa’s elephants.
Thanks so much,
