Stop the sale of wildlife products in Japan

Yahoo is funding and profiting from the massacre of approximately 36,000 elephants per year. Between 2012 and 2014, 12 tons of elephant ivory were sold on Yahoo Japan.

These beautiful animals are very smart they have strong family bonds and can remember a person or relative for a life time. Yahoo, an investor in Yahoo Japan, insists that it cannot force Yahoo Japan to stop the sale of ivory items on the site, even though it doesn't condone the practice. Yahoo's inaction and Yahoo Japan's actions are funding and profiting from the $19 billion illegal wildlife trade where 1 elephant is killed every 15 minutes and none could be left roaming wild in 2025.

The illegal wildlife trade is the fourth largest global illegal trade (narcotics, counterfeiting of products and currency, and human trafficking round up the top 3), and it has close ties to criminal networks, including the infamous Boko Haram. The trade stumps economic and social growth, threatens the environment and endangers national and international security.

Sign and share this petition demanding that Yahoo Japan and Yahoo stop putting profits over preserving elephants for future generations. Yahoo Japan needs to stop the sale of ivory items on its site now. As WildAid says, "When the buying stops, the killing can too."

Even as elephant populations continue to plummet, the ivory trade in Japan is flourishing. Japan has more registered ivory dealers, manufacturers, and wholesalers than any other country and is poised to become one of the world’s largest ivory markets once China closes its domestic ivory market at the end of the year.

The tide is turning in the international effort to protect elephants, leaving Japan as an outlier in the global effort to end the ivory trade. Tell the Japanese government it’s time to shut down its domestic ivory industry.



The United States, China, the United Kingdom, and the European Union have taken steps to shut down or restrict their ivory markets and protect elephants from extinction.

Because of supporters like you, Japan's largest online retailer of ivory products, Rakuten, listened when people urged it to ban such sales from their marketplace earlier this year. Powerful voices from passionate people like you spark real change, and now animals need your voice again to shut down one of the largest domestic ivory markets in the world.
