The March for Elephants and Rhinos in SF, October 3rd



"We admire elephants in part because they demonstrate what we consider the finest human traits: empathy, self-awareness, and social intelligence. But the way we treat them puts on display the very worst of human behavior." - Graydon Carter

Please join our March for Elephants and Rhinos in San Francisco
Saturday, October 3, 2015
10:30 am – 3:00 PM
Starting at Jefferson Square

Did you know that approximately one elephant is killed every 15 minutes in the African continent, 100 elephants are killed every day, 35,000 elephants are killed every year, 1 rhino is killed every 7-11 hours and extinction looms within a generation?

Did you know that San Francisco plays a major role in the illegal ivory trade? A survey commissioned by the Natural Resources Defense Council found that up to 80 percent of ivory in San Francisco is illegal under current law.

Did you know that China is the world’s largest market for illegal ivory?

Did you know that March for Elephants, San Francisco(MFE) has worked tirelessly within the Bay Area and globally to bring attention to the illegal trade in ivory and rhino horn?
March for Elephants will be joining over 100 other cities around the globe in organizing a march and speaking out for elephants and rhinos on October 3rd 2015 in San Francisco. We’ll gather around the Chinese consulate demanding an end to the ivory trade in China, an end to the trade in San Francisco, an end to the trade in the USA and an end to the trade anywhere ivory and rhino horn are commodified. Last year, the San Francisco march and rally drew approximately 2,000 people. 
MFE is a grassroots volunteer organization based in San Francisco that workson behalf of earth’s last elephants and rhinos. We are a group of dedicated advocates, lobbying strategically to promote local and global awareness about the elephant and rhino crises, calling forgovernments to take immediate action to end poaching in range nations,anddemanding an end to the ivory and rhino horn trade at all levels: locally, nationally and internationally.
You can help us by marching for elephants in October. Learn more by visiting marchforelephants.org.
