China Bans Sales of Ivory!

"What can we do? We can persuade people to stop buying ivory. We can donate to those charities working to protect elephants in the countries where they live or to those who support the rangers who are working to protect the elephants. We can put pressure on our governments, when this is needed, to ban the import and export and domestic trade in ivory. And we must also spare a thought for all those elephants who suffer cruel treatment in captivity in Asia, those still forced to perform in circuses, those who languish in zoos. We can protest these cruelties. And we can make use of social media to connect with each other, to amplify our concern. We can blog, sign petitions, share content on Facebook and Twitter, and so much more." - Jane Goodall

Hey Guys & Gals,


It's the most important action we are fortunate to take as Americans.  Voting! (Put down the cynicism, pick up the ballot, you'll be glad you did!).
