A brighter day for the world’s elephants

Today is a brighter day for the world’s elephants – thanks to YOU!
After we delivered our petition, Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra told the world that Thailand is ending the sale of ivory.

It was a courageous decision for the prime minister to make, and your action made a big difference. With Avaaz and WWF, you were part of an amazing 1.6 million-strong team urging her to stand up for elephants and ban Thai ivory trade. 

This is an enormous step forward in the fight to stop wildlife crime.

Your help is vital. Please keep supporting us and together we will ensure that Ms Shinawatra’s pledge becomes a reality. Tell your friends to not buy ivory. And follow our progress by visiting panda.org/wildlifecrime, liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter.

United we’re stronger. Share the news and invite others to be part of this cause.

Thank you!
