Please excuse the heavy news, but this is too important not to share.
- 100,000 elephants were slaughtered for their ivory tusks in the last 3 years.
- Over 1,000 rhinos were killed for their horns last year.
- Wild lion populations are in alarming decline due to “trophy” hunting and the lion bone trade.
We’re losing these animals. The good news is, you can help save them.
On October 4th, people in over 115 cities around the world will march with one voice to save these iconic endangered species.
MARCH WITH US IN LOS ANGELES
We’ll gather at the La Brea Tar Pits Park in front of the Page Museum (5801 Wilshire Blvd, LA 90036) at 11am and march down Wilshire Blvd to the South African Consulate.
Promote your group or business
We’re encouraging people to bring signs promoting their business or group. We know that ALL people want to save these endangered animals, and we want the media and the world to see that.
Bring the kids!
After the march we will return to the park for a festive, educational event. Experts acting as animal ambassadors will help people understand the crisis facing each animal and take action to save them. The program includes speakers (stay tuned for celebrity info!) and music by African drummers, the talented Kat Kramer, and the Agape International Children’s Choir.

HELP US RAISE MONEY
Organizing an event like this is expensive. We have to print flyers, posters, signs, banners, and educational materials. We have to rent sound equipment, tents and tables and chairs. Please donate if you can. Any help, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated.

SPREAD THE WORD
Please SHARE this email far and wide. Many people don’t know elephants, rhinos and lions face extinction. Even if they’re aware of the crisis, they don’t know they can take action to help save them.
We hope that you’ll march with us on October 4 to help prevent the extinction of these endangered species. On behalf of Earth’s threatened elephants, rhinos, and lions, thank you!
With love for the animals,
Susan Campisi, Co-organizer
