Global March for Elephants and Rhinos

More African elephants are being killed each year than are being born. An elephant is killed, on average, every 15 minutes. A rhinoceros is killed, on average, every 10 hours. This is done for their tusks (i.e., ivory) and horns, the market for which is huge — especially in some Asian countries. On October 4th there will be a Global March for Elephants and Rhinos. After decades of mass slaughter these beautiful, intelligent animals are on their way to extinction unless the trend is reversed.  Find out if there’s a march happening in a city near you.
