Come meet with us to learn about life for elephants throughout the world. We will discuss the current crisis facing elephants and rhinos in Africa and Asia, the plight of captive elephants around the globe and what we can do to help them. Currently, 35,000+ elephants are being killed by poachers each year for their tusks. At this rate, elephants in Africa will be extinct in less than 10 years. A rhino is killed at least every 11 hours for its horn. We've already lost the Western Black Rhino to extinction. With only 29,000 white rhinos remaining, we want to raise awareness about this crisis and work to stop the needless slaughter before it's too late. We will also discuss the plight of captive elephants who need us to speak out on their behalf. 

The goal of this group is to spread the word about the plight of elephants and rhinos throughout our local community through tabling, education, presentations, marching and participating in ongoing activities with March for Elephants in San Francisco. 

If you're interested in volunteering to help elephants and rhinos from becoming extinct or from living in unnecessary suffering and loneliness, please join Santa Cruz March for Elephants. You can also contact us by email at scmarchforelephants@gmail.com
