The world lost 38,000 African elephants this year to poaching. When will this stop? It is reported that 7 out of 10 Chinese people do not know that Ivory comes from a elephant that was killed for it. When you buy Ivory you are contributing to the death of matriachs who lead their herds, patriarchs who lead their bulls and allowing the deaths of hundreds of calfs who are dependant on thier mother's milk for 3 years. Let's put a stop this and save these beautiful animals from extinction now!

Thanks, that sounds like a compliment coming from someone who's named: "elephantlover".

By the way, could you explain to me why killing cows or dogs (China, Korea etc) or pigs etc is any better? I have a close friend who's all about animal rights, i disagree with her but i respect her because she's vegeterian.  Are you a vegeterian? If you're not then aren't you a bit of a hypocrite?

What a horrid response!  Totally without empathy or intelligence, unworthy of response.  You are insignificant, eudaimonia, no matter what you may think of yourself, no matter what happens in this world, you are totally without merit and unworthy of further attention on the matter.
