MOONDANCE RECOMMENDS

Join the Elephant Stampede!

Join the Elephant Stampede!

World Elephant Day was Wednesday, August 12, and this year we had something BIG to celebrate! President Obama recently introduced a proposal to ban ivory sales in the United States. Once enacted, this ban will close loopholes that have allowed smugglers to disguise ivory from recently killed elephants and sell them as antiques in the U.S. It will send a clear message that America is serious about shutting down the ivory trade and saving elephants. But the president’s proposal isn’t law yet. The administration is collecting public comments for 60 days and you can bet that opponents of the ivory ban (yes, there are people who oppose this common sense regulation) will be vocal. We need voices in support of the ban to #BeHerd.

Earlier this year, the Wildlife Conservation Society worked with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) to investigate the ivory trade on Craigslist. But there’s more work to be done. Talk about a big statement! Recently, elephants and other endangered species lit up New York City, appearing on the side of the Empire State Building!
