Every year, thousands of elephants are slaughtered for their ivory. Join our elephant march today to convince governments to protect elephants and stop the ivory trade.

This was such a pleasure to watch...compared to knowing and seeing how many elephants are killed by poachers and even parks that feel the population is too large. What do we need to change all of this? Respect for LIFE, perhaps?? These poachers obviously don't understand the life of the elephant or respect them. GREED overtakes any human sympathy or feelings for life of a creature. Perhaps a very, very high fine and incarceration for a long, long time...would deter these people.
Thank you for the film...it's very educating to know the elephant is making a comeback there!!

Thank you for that wonderful video - every mother could relate to it. Unfortunately, as much as we may wish to stop the ivory trade, superstition and greed will motivate it, particularly with a cultural background such as in Asia, where status is still so much related to the display of wealth. The only solution - shoot the poachers, burn the ivory.

How lovely to watch something like this instead of all these poor animals getting abused or slaughtered for no reason at all.
How rewarding it must be for Cynthia:) Good on you for a job well done:)

We have learned allot about elephants, but we have much more to learn.
I think one way to make a big impact in the preservation of elephants and most endangered animals is to slow population growth.....drastically.

Habitat loss is one of the biggest factors in why animals become endangered. Today the earth's population is 7 billion, by 2050 it is predicted to be 9 billion. What that means is that will consume even more, we will require more land (loss of natural habitats for animals), we will pollute even more.

I don't want to live in a world that is over populated, polluted and has no wild animals or nature. Do you?

So beautiful I wish all animals could live in peace, this world would be a beautiful place, animals feel things just like humans, it is such a shame that there are humans out there that just want to destroy these beautiful creatures and for what all for some ivory
