We are in a serious race--to stop the demand for illegal ivory-- before the illegal poaching pushes elephants in the wild into extinction.  Estimates are 7-10%  killed per year from poaching--others die from famine, drought, sickness and even a few make it to die of old age.  A math whiz isn’t needed to figure the odds of survival are bleak--extinction by 2025, they say--if something isn’t done to “stem the tide.”  What is that something?  It is us!  On Change.Org., there are dozens of petitions we can sign--some with high-profile names such as Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton.   Price?   Zero!!!

“Stand up and speak out, and stop this trade!”
