Blood Ivory

According to the acclaimed film director Kathryn Bigelow, “An elephant disappears every fifteen minutes.”  If that does not shock you, the fact that the sale of illegal ivory goes to finance terrorist  groups such as Al Qaeda, Al-Shabaab and Boko Haram.  We all have to help increase awareness, as we did with blood diamonds, to stop the sale of Blood Ivory and elephant slaughter.  

Bigelow has made a short movie, Last Days- WildAid about the shocking trade in elephant tusks, and how it could lead to the eradication of one of the Earth’s great and most sensitive species of mammals. See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gQujyNDp98 and please share this link and talk about this important issue.
