The word "poaching" better be the forefront of this conference, or it matters little what else is discussed.

Impose the death penalty for all poachers/hunters and this will solve most problems

Related AVAAZ PETITION:Stop the elephant slaughter Please sign!

in days, Thailand will host a key global summit on illegal trade in endangered species, giving us a rare chance to stop this futile massacre.

Thailand is the world’s largest unregulated ivory market and a top driver of the illegal trade.They’ve been in the hot seat for years, yet so far little has been done to clamp down on their role in the elephant attack. But Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has just announced that she is considering a full ivory ban. That's why we started a global petition on the Avaaz site, to give this campaign the last push it needs to win.
