Dear Chair of the New York State Assembly Committee on Environmental Conservation and colleagues,

Happy new year and greetings from [Your State or Country Here]!

96 elephants are killed each day by poachers to fuel the ivory trade of which New York State represents the largest market for in the U.S. TIGHTEN RESTRICTIONS on IVORY SALES and MOVE TO BAN. The ivory trade sponsors terrorism, is killing humans and driving elephants to extinction. At the rate of one elephant killed every 15 minutes for its ivory tusks, there will be no more elephants roaming wild by 2025. You have the power to help prevent this by moving for a 100% ivory ban by making New York State ivory-free.

Thank you!

The Final Countdown

We are just one month away from the October 4 International March for Elephants! Yesterday, I was proud to meet Rosie Plaia from Different Rhythm Foundation as she finished her 160 mile walk from Austin to Houston to raise awareness for the elephant poaching crisis. Below are pictures of her arrival. We look forward to seeing her next month for the International March!

Houston will be hosting the walk at City Hall from 11am-12pm with local speakers on wildlife conservation & elephant advocacy. For the first 125 attendees, Whole Foods Kirby is providing goodie-bags. Tshirts for the walk can also be purchased HERE. Not in Houston? There are marches being hosted all around the world - CLICK HERE to find a city near you!

Celia Ho on National Geographic

Celia Ho, 14-year-old activist in China trying to save the elephants and end illegal ivory trade, shares her wisdom with National Geographic’s “A Voice For Elephants”:

“I take every chance to share my campaign and the difficulties elephants are facing…Everyone has his or her power, which is very influential,” she explains. “They can make good use of their social network, by maybe writing a status on Facebook or sending a letter to newspapers, just like I have done.”

Join the movement. Share this blog. LIKE our FB page and FOLLOW @elephantopia on twitter. Let’s raise awareness, together. Each of us can do our part (read my latest experience on how sharing DOES make a difference: Elephant Awareness)
