SLAUGHTERED EVERY 15 MINUTES FOR THEIR TUSKS
Despite the ban on international trade, elephants are being poached in record numbers. An estimated 35,000 elephants are slaughtered every year for their ivory. Slaughtered elephants leave behind their orphaned young who are condemned to die by starvation, dehydration, and predation. Elephant numbers have decimated 64 percent over the last decade, and conservationists fear they will be extinct in the next 10 years.
HELP SAVE THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT
Wildlife is under attack by Congress. Congressional bill H.R. 2603 aims to remove Africa’s species from the Endangered Species Act. This includes Africa’s most vulnerable iconic species like elephants and rhinos. Some powerful members of Congress and special interest groups are trying to dismantle the law. We need your help to save this landmark Act before it’s too late.
