Help save the elephants and rhinos from poaching. They are brutally tortured and killed for their IVORY!!! Their ivory is brutally removed from them to be used for TRINKETS !!!!! How horribly inhumane. Help by marching, signing petitions, sharing the information, donations to organizations…. Many ways to help. And definitely don’t buy trinkets. Helping abused animals is critical to them and our world. We are losing so many: 1 rhino is killed every 9 hours. 1 elephant is killed every 15 minutes. They don’t have much time left.
For more information about the march on October 4, and to find out the cities where the march will take place, visit http://www.march4elephantsandrhinos.org.
