Let Them Hear You Roar!

Let them hear your ROAR!

Elephants, tigers and rhinos are being illegally killed so their parts can be used for jewellery, alleged medicines, carvings, cosmetics and other luxury goods. On 12 and 13 February this year, governments from around the world will gather in London to determine how to end illegal wildlife trade. 

Did you know:

  • Rhino poaching increased by over 7,500% between 2007-13, with an average of three killed a day.
  • There are more captive tigers in the US than there are left in the wild

  • Since 2004, Central Africa has lost two-thirds of its elephant population. 
  • At least 1,000 park rangers have been killed in 35 different countries over the last decade alone as they work to protect wildlife.
You can help make a difference. Add your roar and send a message to the leaders gathering at the London Conference that you stand shoulder to shoulder in the fight against wildlife trafficking. 

The London conference is organised by the UK Government and is supported by The Royal Foundation, WWF and ZSL. It will help to focus high-level political attention on efforts across the globe to stem the shocking rises in the illegal wildlife trade over the last decade, which has devastated some of our iconic species.

  • The Biggest Roar

    February 11, 2014
    So just one day away from our London conference to #endwildlifecrime and our thunderclap has been supported by 4,000 "Netizens" around the world. It's an indication that the appetite to tackle the root causes of illegal poaching and the decimation of habitat that threatens our most iconic species is shared beyond Governments.

    The media attention has been healthily building; from looking at the role of sniffer dogs, to the use of DNA in tracking Rhino horn.  NGO activity has seen several organisations involved in publicly burning ivory horn in several countries.
  • You Roared Mightily!

It goes to show the appetite to tackle illegal wildlife trade is a cause that touches people around the globe. It is why we want the London conference in February to mean something and lead to long lasting change.
