Stop buying illegal ivory and decimating the elephant population

2012 is the worst year for the poaching of elephants since 1989. Over 25,000 elephants were murdered last year for their tusks. Mother elephants were found over their babies bodies; they died defending them. A group of 50 elephants died together, taking a stand against AK 47s, grenades and rocket launchers. They died terrified and they died together. Elephants are intelligent, incredible, mammals who are extremely important to the ecosystem and many other animals. They are also important to the people of Africa and Asia and bring in money through tourism. The death of these wonderful creatures so someone can use their tusks for religious icons and carvings is wrong and shameful. It must stop and the governments listed above are the main buyers of ivory, especially China.

      The slaughter of elephants for their tusks is a vile practice. There is no excuse for such cruel, sadistic behaviour.
