Slaughtering elephants for their ivory has always been a hideous act of cruelty to me, ever since I was a child, old enough to understand that people actually kill these incredibly majestic animals just to get money for their tusks. My pastor tells me, "Never do anything only for the money." Killing elephants for their ivory is a totally evil act. Perpetrators will answer to God.

ELEPHANTS SHOULD BE STUDIED AND PROTECTED AROUND THE WORLD. THEY ARE VERY SMART AND HAVE EMOTIONS LIKE HUMANS.

This video displays perfectly the love that our treasured pets have for us. Mydog welcomes me like this each time I return from even a short time away,and makes me wonder how so many people can be cruel to animals who show them so much love.

Keep up the hard work guys. You are a beecon of light in a cruel world. I have always wondered how does an ordinary person like me become involved in an organization like yours. What does it take to become a member of your team. Keep up the good fight!

Such magnificent creatures, another one of God's miracles. As long as there is money involved in ivory, there will be those who have no respect for the beautiful animals.

There has to be a substitue made that increases money in order to stop this horrible practice, plus prison time is an absolute must for poachers.

A much more effective situation would be to cut off an arm of a poacher....let them see and feel the pain when you cut something from an animal. Jail/prison time won't do it....cutting off an arm or both arms is a drastic measure but not as drastic as the extinction of thse incredible, beautiful creatures. In addition, moving the elephants to a safe haven is another suggestion...perhaps in another country. I would certainly try to help with a donation to make this happen. Take away the source and you save something from extinction.

So many human beings are so terribly lacking compared to those of the animal kingdom. Hurting animals for either money or research of some kind or another(all bad). Animals are truly the superior among us. We have the mental capacity to do so much for our world,and the animals we share it with,and what do so many of our fellow humans do?....use their "intelligence",to harm rather than help. Sometimes I think God must look down on us and weep. I applaud organizations like IFAW,and all those individuals who try their best to help animals,big and small,every day.
