ONE every 15 Minutes
One elephant is killed every 15 minutes.
Today is the International March for Elephants that is organized by The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust through their iworry campaign. The peaceful marches will take place in 15 cities around the world representing the single largest demonstration of awareness for elephants. The ivory trade is an international crisis that must be acknowledged by governments world wide if we are to see any changes and hope for the elephant. At this rate of killing, African Elephants could become extinct in the wild by 2025.
