I pledge to do at Least ONE Thing Effective for the Elephants Every Day

      Adelaide, Australia

Elephants are being killed at +/- 100 a day in Africa for their tusks to fuel the bloody trade in Ivory. Elephants are abused everyday all around the world in circuses, zoos and on the streets of Thailand. Elephants are amazing, social, complex animals with strong family bonds and beautiful in their own right. We must speak up for them if they are to survive, or live as good a life as possible incarcerated. They need each one of us. Today, Tomorrow, and ever after. I stand and speak for the elephants!
