Peace for the Elephants

The recent statistics say that within 7 years the elephant will be extinct; no more will these gorgeous beasts roam the savannahs of Africa and those iconic photographs and experiences will be resigned to history.  When our children ask about Dumbo and Colonel Hathi we will have to tell them of these magnificent animals which we watched get slaughtered to make bracelets and trinkets.  

This is the time for change.  It was Tanzania back in the 1980s who led the charge against poaching and we desperately need that energy, strength and resilience again.  The global community is waking up to these atrocities and wonderful organisations and individuals are making head way, but how will you support our elephants?  

Today, wear a white flower on your lapel to show your stance against this vicious cruelty and tell the world that its time for change.
