Educate China: demanding ivory leads to 1000s of elephants killed each day.


Because of the high demand for ivory in Asia, African countries are forced to kill thousands of elephants daily for the ivory of their tusks for a high price. When one elephant is killed, the rest of the elephants in the herd gather around to mourn the deceased elephant and stroke it with their trunks. The hunters use this opportunity to kill the gathered elephants as well. With education, I believe that people, especially in Asia, who treasure ivory will realize that demanding the product will cause much more harm than help. Sign this petition to stop cruelety towards these innocent creatures!
