The Elephant in Times Square

EVERY DAY…

*There are 100 elephants killed  for their meat and ivory.

* 2 rhino are killed for their horn (a lesser amount due to the lesser population). A rate that has increased an unimaginable 3,336% in 4 years!

Poaching is killing not just our animals, but our economies and through vast criminal networking-our people. Poaching is not just the deed taken on by the poor man, but terrorist groups, using the funds of the ivory and horn for their darker cause, making the illegal wildlife trade the fourth most lucrative global criminal activity.

This is a global issue needing IMMEDIATE attention from our people, and immediate action from our governments.

Therefore one of the biggest global issues of our time, concerning the biggest land mammal should have the biggest platform…Times Square in New York.

The advocacy group March for Elephants  envisioned a billboard in Times Square to bring an urgent call of action to the poaching crisis. The enormous digital billboard will be launched on Sept 29th and will run for a month at a frequency of once every 2 minutes, 24 hours a day. (Using imagery and art, it will feature the tragedy of extinction caused by greed and question if trinkets are worth the price.)

There is a campaign to raise $25,000 to fund this endeavor. Elephants NEED this exposure. Many people are not even aware they are in danger. If we can’t stop this, they will be gone in just 10 years.
