For every 1000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to Congress asking them to draft legislation that will provide funding and political help to prevent the extinction of giraffes.

[Update 3/16/17: We have sent the first letter to Congress with 1,000+ of your signatures. We will continue to send letters every 1,000 signatures. Thank you!]

Over the past 30 years, the giraffe population has dropped nearly 40%. With illegal hunting, habitat loss and environmental changes these mammals are being slowly pushed to extinction. 

This decrease in giraffe population will continue until we do something to stop it. With funding and political help, these animals could be preserved. There is currently no legislation to help prevent this extinction. 

“Whilst giraffes are commonly seen on safari, in the media and in zoos, people – including conservationists – are unaware that these majestic animals are undergoing a silent extinction,” said Julian Fennessy, co-chair of the IUCN’s giraffe and okapi specialist group. “It is timely that we stick our neck out for the giraffe before it is too late,” he said.

Sign this petition and help us tell Congress that the people want the protection of giraffes put into place.

  • Climate change IS real……..and it is projected that by 2024 there will be a population of 8 BILLION of the self proclaimed “superior species”, consuming more, building more (on already dwindling land space) & producing MORE fossil fuel produced, throw away products! We can not “grow” on like this. We are ADDICTED to oil and with ANY addiction, one either ceases the addiction or dies. You have only 2 choices….to stop or die. We are well on our way to the 2nd choice.
  • Save our planet and the animals that live here!
  • Giraffes are in need of protection, how could it even get this far!
