I am outraged by the killing of chimpanzees and other imperiled wildlife species for the commercial bushmeat trade--a shortsighted and cruel practice that is pushing great apes and other endangered species to the brink of extinction.

Please join me in this critical action... thank you my friends.

Thank you so much for signing our bushmeat petition. Your signature will help us show policymakers just how many of their constituents care about the protection of chimpanzees.

Thank you for posting, Rosemary. And yes, wrote legislatures about Great Ape Protection Act. Honestly, some of the replies I get back....well, let's just say, they don't make me happy. Very placating. So, I root for the more aggressive organizations.

Done. I saw a nightline or dateline show about how much is sold in New York City alone, and it was staggering. Come to think of it, since I joined care2, I don't think i've watched a single program start to finish!

As I do not live in the US I could not sign the petition but I support it 100%. I suspect that this isn't about how the meat tastes but yet another example of the super rich 'affording something different'! What a shame that those with so much money dont't do something better with it such as donate it to those who are not as fortunate as they are.

I don't know why we humans are eating wild animals meat nowadays and eat them into extinction. Please stop and ban this bushmeat trade.

Eating apes is, to me, like eating other humans. We are so much alike. To drive these incredible, magnificent animals to the brink of extinction and kill them for just horrifies me. What monsters the human race appears to be.
