Protection Needed for Elephants in Cameroon National Park

Sad news from Cameroon, in less than one month it is estimated that over 200 elephants have been killed.  Mongabay have reported that the protected elephants have been killed for their tusks by Sudanese ivory poachers.

The elephant population of Cameroon is estimated at around 1000 - 1500 and this slaughter is a shattering loss to the population.

Please sign this petition asking the President of Cameroon, Paul Biya and the Prime Minister Philemon Yang to do more to protect their elephants.  The elephants that were killed were situated in a National Park but more measures need to be put in place to protect them further.
