The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?

David Attenborough

On July 24, 2012, ivory poachers killed 30 or more elephants.

Warning: video has some disturbing images. 

If poaching continues at this rate, “not a single elephant will be alive in Chad in three years time.”

How you can help.

Please sign the the SOS Elephants petition to stop killing African elephants for illegal ivory trade.

SOS Elephants is the only non-government organization in Chad dedicated to preserving elephants and their habitats. It works through a combination of research, education, conservation and counter-poaching actions. The organization has developed a network of 100 to 200 local people who inform about poaching activities, including providing positions of poachers or elephants.

    I truly cannot believe that we have not evolved enough, as members of this planet, to allow these beautiful creatures to live in peace. Really – 2012 and 30 more needless deaths in one day!!! I couldn't even watch the video – cried just to see the picture… Compassion, step up – Don't let GREED be our legacy!

    My father always say"s "pick your battles" and this is a true battle to save the precious Giants, I am choosing this battle as Pachyderms have always been near and dear too my heart. I am quite ignorant in respect to how I might approach this battle other than obviously boycotting ivory, and I would like to do more than just sign a check and be done with it,if anyone can help me approach this horrific massacre that continues as I write this please e-mail me.or leave a reply msg.Thank you. Sincerely Zana.
