The Thai Peition has now closed

Thanks to lots of wonderful people like you, this campaign has already been tremendously successful. On Sunday 3rd March 2013 the Thai Prime Minister, Yingluck Shinawatra has pledged to end the country’s ivory trade. It’s the first time the Thai government has publicly said it would take steps to end ivory trade.

It’s obviously a great step forward, but we all have to keep up the pressure for change. We need to see a timeline for the ban, which must be put into force urgently, because elephant poaching is already at crisis levels.

WWF will work with the Thai government to ensure this ban comes into force and we will work in other Asian countries to reduce the demand of ivory.
