Elephant orphans in our care, many of whom have lost their mother's to ivory poachers, walked side by side with their keepers and the public, under the banner - Fighting for their lives!

These elephants have been directly impacted by the illegal ivory trade and it is for their future and that of their wild kin across Africa and Asia that today, in over 100 cities globally, thousands of people have taken to the streets.The world must know what is happening and must act to save the species.
