On Thursday, 14th April 2016 President Prof Arthur Peter Mutharika and foreign diplomats in Lilongwe met with National Parks and Wildlife as well as Lilongwe Wildlife Trust at State House to attend the ceremony of the video launch: "Say No to Ivory Trade".
The "Stop Wildlife Crime" campaign was launched in February 2014 with a set of broad objectives: inspire local pride in the nation's natural heritage, encourage action from decision makers and law enforcers, and attract international support in light of Malawi's resolve to combat illegal wildlife trade. It is a joint initiative between Department of National Parks & Wildlife and Lilongwe Wildlife Trust.
The short film launched on Thursday is part of this campaign, in which H.E. Prof Arthur Peter Mutharika, President of the Republic of Malawi, leads fifteen foreign Ambassadors, High Commissioners and Honorary Consuls with a message for citizens, residents and visitors to Malawi.
