Pledge to Save Africa's Elephants From Extinction

Background:
The African elephant population is in drastic decline, having shrunk about 30 percent from 2007 to 2014. The main cause? A growing Chinese middle class that covets hand-crafted ivory objects. Public awareness campaigns are helping to reduce demand but we need to keep up the pressure.  If left unchecked we could see the extinction of the African elephant in ten years.  

What You Can Do:
Take the pledge below. Agree not to buy or sell ivory carvings, jewelry, or other products that threaten elephants and to spread the word to friends and family.

I pledge not to buy any jewelry, carvings, or other objects made from ivory and to raise awareness about the plight of Africa's elephants to friends and family.

The African elephant population has been decimated because of the ivory trade. Experts agree that unless it is banned the African elephant could become extinct in ten years.
