STAE was invited to present to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Endangered Species

In December 2015 STAE was invited to present to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Endangered Species. STAE CEO Duncan McNair informed Members about the threats to wild Asian elephants, in particular illegal capture for the tourist and temple trades, and the horrors faced by captive elephants.Duncan brought to Members’ attention the overwhelming public opinion for action (poll results) and that the UK and Indian Prime Ministers recently resolved to work together to protect Asian elephants (Joint Statement).

We are confident that the APPG’s involvement will further help to bring political attention to this issue and pressure for the government to take action on its election promise. We look forward to working further with the APPG.Note: The APPG is a cross-party group of Members of the House of Commons and House of Lords that takes a particular lead in political matters involving endangered species.
