Help protect elephants and rhinos in 2017

More than 25,000 elephants died at the hands of poachers in 2016 and more than 1,000 of (mainly)white rhinos were killed in South Africa. The BORN FREE foundation says "Unless the international community takes urgent action to shut down the global ivory and rhino horn markets.....we will the last generation to see these magnificent animals in the wild" . The trade in "old" ivory which Britain allows is helping to legitimise the worldwide trade in new elephant ivory. Please do all you can to make this known.
