If you care about the Lions of Southern Africa, please add your name to the petition

SIGN THE PETITION BY CLICKING ON THE LINK BELOW

http://www.avaaz.org/en/1_million_to_ban_the_lion_trade_fbb/

 South African lions are being slaughtered for their bones to make sex potions and other bogus remedies. President Zuma could ban the trade if he's shown it is hurting South Africa's image as a tourist destination.

I've just signed this important petition at Avaaz.org

THANK YOU!
