Nearly 100 elephants are slaughtered every day to feed to the blood ivory trade. Rhino horn is more expensive than gold, and greedy poachers are eager to make a profit from killing these endangered animals. All of Africa’s great apes are endangered.
Elephants are amazing animals -- they love each other, mourn their dead and dedicate their lives to raising their children. It breaks my heart that so many of their lives are taken by poachers.
African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) is working around the clock to ensure these threatened species have a place in our future. They’re equipping anti-poaching patrols, working with governments and legislative officials to enforce wildlife trafficking penalties, strengthening law enforcement with ivory- and rhino-horn detecting canine units and reducing demand through celebrity-driven public awareness campaigns.
That’s why I started this campaign to help AWF launch more of these critical projects across the African continent — and I need you to help me.
Please donate to my campaign. Even a small amount helps.
