Stop hunting in Himalayas, Nepal

On Nov 3, 2011, a week after we handed over this petition, the Ministry of Forests and Soil Conservation of Nepal announced it will not allow hunting in Kanchenjunga Conservation area. Our campaign has been successful! Thank you all who signed the petition.

We, the undersigned, call on the government of Nepal to ban hunting in Kanchenjunga Conservation Area, in order to protect the Blue Sheep and Snow Leopard, and to develop the region as an eco tourism destination using community participation.

Nepal will not be given credit to opening its precious conservation areas in the Himalayas for hunting. Instead these regions should be considered sacred areas in which killing animals is banned.

This petition is now closed.
