March to end the ivory/rhino horn trade

We have changed the arrival time at St. Mary's Square from 10:30 to 10:15 as we will begin marching at 10:45. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

St. Mary's Square, San Francsico, California
https://www.facebook.com/events/494618293994379/


This is your opportunity for all San Francisco and Bay Area residents to come together to determine creative and imaginative ways on ending the ivory and rhino horn trade in California and the world.

Did you know that California is the second largest market in the USA for illegal ivory? Did you know that China is the largest market for ivory in the world, and has 37+ ivory carving factories and more than 145 ivory retail outlets; a steady stream of ivory from Africa, from brutally poached elephants sustains the ivory market in China.

Did you also know? 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. The countdown to elephant and rhino extinction has begun - unless action is taken now, we will lose these majestic, highly intelligent, and emotionally sentient creatures FOREVER. Join us! March against extinction. Let's meet to discuss ways to end the trade

      So glad you enjoyed the March. It was a wonderful way to show support for the elephants and rhinos that need our help.

    I thought it interesting that all the shops that were on the ban ivory list that we visited were closed! I guess they got advanced notification from the police that we were coming?

      Ruth, they were open last year when we did a memorial service in front of them. I think they got a heads up from the bagged parking meters we paid to have kept open, the SFPD didn't give them a heads up.

    It was great to see all the public support for the future of elephants and rhinos. Let's hope this global event reaches the masses

    To all new members: Please go to the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos San Francisco facebook page to sign up for the March on October 4th. It should be a fantastic day advocating for our beloved elephants and rhinos! Also, please indicate if you might be able to help with promoting it prior to the March and/or would be able to help during the March. With everyone's help, we will succeed in saving them. :)
