Spread the word.
Every 15 minutes, an elephant is killed by poachers for its tusks.
Every. 15. Minutes.
To echo this dreadful statistic, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) will post tweets every 15 minutes from midnight tonight through World Elephant Day tomorrow.
Each tweet is a unique portrait of an elephant—an intelligent, feeling individual and member of a family and community. Each one’s suffering matters.
