Saving the Elephants!

Basically, the cutest elephant you will ever see.

Basically, the cutest elephant you will ever see.

The World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) has been working to get 1,000,000 signatures on a petition to present to the prime minister of Thailand, Yingluck Shinawatra, to ban the ivory trade. This accounts for the slaughter of up to 30,000 elephants per year. With supporters such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Prince William this movement has received a massive amount of attention.

Now, of course I signed this petition and practically shoved my laptop in the faces of my friends and made them sign it as well. The lives of elephants are more important than any bracelet, trinket, or ornament. No question about it. The petition has 587,831 signatures so far. There should be more! SIGN THE PETITION

  1. I did the exact same and forced my friends to sign! Such a shame that a majority of people don’t even care enough to go out of their way for less than a minute to try and make a difference for the helpless things.

    • I know! That’s why we have to keep reposting it everywhere and hope to get the right kind of people’s attention. Glad there are are least 2 of us who care enough!
