African elephant poaching has increased at an alarming rate. If nothing is done to stop the killing of these magnificent creatures for their ivory tusks, they will be threatened with extinction in the near future.
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) tells us that the United States is the second largest retail market for ivory. In that capacity, the U.S. is helping in the demise of elephants.
The White House is considering the issue, so please call at 202-456-1111 to ask them to stop the ivory trade in the U.S. Go to the HSUS website and send a follow-up message to legislators to help stop this cruel massacre and make the ivory trade illegal in the U.S. Make sure your message stands out so it won’t be lost among the mail.
