Can You Love Like This?

Say No To Ivory 

A message from Dame Daphne Sheldrick, one of the supporters at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

"I know elephants intimately having reared their orphaned young over a lifetime. I have witnessed their suffering and their grieving for lost loved ones, and I have often been ashamed to be a member of the human race in view of how they have been treated at the hands of humans. 

Noble, powerful, yet inherently gentle elephants are emotionally identical to us, but so much better than us in many ways. Endowed with a mysterious intuition, slow to anger, they never forget, and yet find forgiveness despite the unjust and evil cruelty inflicted on them. 

Today elephants are dying in droves on a daily basis, to feed the infamous and evil ivory trade fueled by the demand from the East. Killing such a magnificent animal simply for its ivory epitomizes all that is evil. It is outrageous, cruel and wrong and cannot be allowed to continue."

It is time for all caring people in the world to make a difference by speaking out loud and clear against this inhuman practice that is driving elephants as a species to extinction - Your voice can be heard.
