CHORUS CALLS FOR NEW ZEALAND TO BE ON THE SIDE OF WILDLIFE
This World Animal Day, the Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand (JGI NZ) has brought together an assembly of prominent organisations with their sights set on an industry which is threatening to cause the extinction of two of the world’s most iconic animals, and the need for New Zealand to be part of the global response.
JGI NZ is campaigning for an end to New Zealand’s domestic trade in elephant ivory and rhinoceros horn, and will celebrate World Animal Day by delivering a letter to parliament co-signed by Dr. Jane Goodall, former Prime Minister, UNDP Administrator and JGINZ patron, Rt. Hon. Helen Clark, and more than forty national and international institutions, asking the New Zealand government to put the stronger measures in place to ensure New Zealand plays its part to protect these iconic animals.
Here is the open letter provided to Ministers of the New Zealand government.
