Dear Legislator,

As your constituent, I am writing to ask you to please support S.496/H.772 to restrict the trade of ivory and rhino horn products in Massachusetts.

The United States is among the world's largest markets for illegal wildlife goods, including elephant ivory and rhino horn. The illegal wildlife trade is a multi-billion-dollar enterprise, fueling transnational crime and incentivizing the cruel killing of animals for their parts.

In 2016, the Great Elephant Census revealed a staggering 30% loss of African savannah elephants between 2007 and 2014 in 15 of the 18 countries surveyed, primarily due to poaching. More than 1,000 rhinos were poached in Africa in 2018, with only 29,000 remaining in the wild worldwide.



Elephants and rhinos deserve better than being hunted and killed for their parts. Please take a stand for these beautiful, intelligent animals today!

Signed,
[Your Name]
