Help the Indian 'Wildlife Protection Act' sign now

To: Shri. Jairam Ramesh, Minister for Environment & Forests, Government of India
India has lost valuable voiceless wealth in the form of environment degradation and loss of wildlife and its habitat in recent times despite having one of the MOST POWERFUL LAW IN THE WORLD- The Wildlife Protection Act' 1972

Is it time we brought a change?

A Change that can strengthen the existing act for good and help preserve whatever little is left of mother nature's wonders India.

So come on, each one of you can be a part of the change.

Join us in assisting the expert committee and the Hon'ble Environment & Forest Minister, Shri. Jairam Ramesh in the noble effort of adding a punch to the act.

The amendments to the act are almost ready and it is only a matter of time before it is tabled in the Parliament for approval.

Many eminent wildlife experts and lawyers like Ms. Belinda Wright, Mr. Valmik Thapar, Mr. Mahendra Vyas, Mr. Praveen Kumar have helped in making several valid suggestions for amendments to the act which we hope will certainly be followed and implemented.

Some of the important suggestions proposed are:

* All the exemptions to exotic birds be removed.
* Fish species be a strong part of the Act.
* Exemptions to Peacock (National Animal) feather sale be removed.
* Leg traps and their manufacturers to be held liable under the act even if no animal has been put in them.
* There have been over 100 things like this put in the act by the experts.

You can also contribute by speaking your mind and mailing your suggestions to the Hon'ble Minister.

While the experts have ensured that no stone is left unturned and suggested all possible recommendations for strict laws, there is a strong feeling that a section of policy makers may try to mislead the Minister and others concerned and derail the whole process only to weaken the existing law by ten times for vested interests.

WE SHALL NOT LET THIS HAPPEN !!

THIS IS OUR INDIA, IT IS INDIA'S VOICELESS WILDLIFE, VOICELESS ANIMALS, VOICELESS ENVIRONMENT AND HABITATS THAT ARE IN SEVERE CRISIS !

So spare a few minutes to write to the Hon'ble Minister Mr. Jairam Ramesh to accept all the recommendations of the experts and to completely ignore any attempt that can perhaps MURDER the existing Wildlife Protect Act.

1.Sign the petition
