We seek better treatment of animals everywhere - in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home,
and in the wild.

Ask CITES to Save African Elephants - Photo from Flickr James Joel

It is estimated that nearly 100 African elephants are slaughtered each day for their ivory. The poaching and illegal trade in ivory is driving elephant populations toward extinction. Join us in asking member countries of CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) to protect all African elephants and extinguish any possibility of legalized ivory trade.
