***Petition***"China Must Keep the Trade Ban on Rhino Powder and Tiger Bone - the Animals Threaten Extinction."

- 17 days ago -
China wants to surprisingly approve the trade in rhino powder and tiger bone. The products should be used in the future again in traditional Chinese medicine, although they have no medical effect.

Twenty-five years ago (1993), China banned the trade in rhinoceros horns and tiger parts. The products have been removed from the Pharmacopoeia of Traditional Chinese Medicine in response to the animals' massive poaching and lack of medicinal action.

The Chinese government now wants to re-approve trade for "healing and research purposes". There is no scientific evidence that the animal parts can heal people. Rhinoceros is made of keratin, the same material as our hair and fingernails.

This inevitably increases the demand and trade in such products, even though the announcement is only for captive-bred animals. The experience with ivory shows that the legal trade with parts of wild animals is closely connected with the poaching and hardly to be separated. In addition, the trade in "antique" tiger and rhino products for private use should also be permitted.

The lifting of the trade ban sends a fatal signal to the poaching of endangered species. Poachers shoot the animals illegally because there is a demand for the animal parts and the trade is thus a billion dollar business. Legalization continues to put pressure on these rare species.

The decision is a major blow to global wildlife conservation. She could finally divulge the animals to the species-death.

Praise thanks to recognition to you Doris.

btw, recently discovered THE absolute (for me) #1 online translator that outshines the GOOLAG translator in performance and privacy by far:

give it a try Doris, me thinks it's worth checking it out:

o.k. it's artificial intelligence and thus NWO, however, finally seen, is not it the result that counts and GOOLAG with all it's numerous implemented spy properties is left out in the cold ?

Today, I'm pretty sure that this new technology will only be used for the sole benefit of people as long as this small company is not bought by GOOLAG or Microcrap...
