Elephants hold the highest level of consciousness of any land animal on the planet and at this time in history we need their presence more than ever. Their energy, love and unique qualities enrich our lives and there is so much they can teach us.

It has been estimated that approximately 30,000 elephants are killed each year! They are at times shot and the ivory is cut out while they are still alive. In some instances water sources are poisoned and vastly more species of animals and birds are destroyed due of the greed over the ivory. When one considers an elephant is pregnant for 22 months, almost 2 years, their extinction is inevitable — unless we act.

Consider what the world would be like if there were no elephants at all and they were only a part of history? What a terrible legacy to leave our children and grandchildren. The extinction of elephants would diminish the quality of life for all of us. There is nothing that justifies the possible extinction of an entire species of animals— particularly one as extraordinary as the elephants.

Please speak out before it is too late. Please speak out against the poaching of animals for ivory and financial gain and speak out against the import of ivory in America and all nations! We can reverse this terrible trend if we each speak up.

Walk in beauty, Ahni
