The Charlotte Animal Welfare Meetup Group Message Board › Global March for Elephants and Rhinos
|A former member||
On October 4th people in cities throughout the world will march as one voice to save Elephants and Rhinos. The countdown to their extinction has begun - unless action is taken now, we will lose these majestic, highly intelligent, and emotionally sentient creatures FOREVER.
Up to 50,000 Elephants are being killed every year so their tusks can be carved into ivory trinkets. A Rhino is slaughtered once every 9-11 hours for Rhino Horn. Their only hope for survival lies in an immediate end to the ivory and rhino horn trade (both "legal" and "illegal") and a meaningful opportunity to recover from decades of mass slaughter.
Please join the global march in Charlotte NC on Oct 4th to call for an end to the killing and a ban on ivory and rhino horn before it's too late.
Save the DATE!! Time and place to be announced later.
