International March for Elephants

The Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Kenya called for a World Wide / International March to stop the poaching of Elephants (one every 15 minutes).  

Pachyderm Power!  is organizing a March for Denver!
In Denver we will be marching from the Denver Zoo to the Pepsi Center (4 miles) where the Ringling Bros. Circus will be performing. We will "connect the dots" between abuse of elephants in captivity / entertainment and slaughter of elephants in the wild.
Our Slogan is: 

Ivory Belongs to Elephants & Elephants Belong in the Wild

Schedule: Sunday, Oct. 13, meet at Zoo entrance at 11:30am. March to the Pepsi Center, about 4 miles. Join the educational demo at the Ringling Bros. circus, starting at 1:30pm. 


RSVP if you will attend:  [masked]

Please, please, puhleese RSVP!!

      Hi Gabrielle. Am back from Kenya and want to let you, and others know, that Publication Printers are printing a bunch of signs for us. I look forward to seeing you and hoping for dry skies. :-)
