PETITION SITE - Save the Asian Unicorn From Extinction!, Jun 02, 2012

Save the Asian Unicorn From Extinction!

 "The gentle saola, affectionately dubbed the "Asian Unicorn," was only discovered 20 years ago. But it is quickly approaching extinction because of poachers.

The few saola placed in captivity quickly died. As a result, the Saola Reserve was implemented in 2011 to provide them a safe haven. However, poachers have still managed to nearly destroy the already tiny population.
