Hope also comes from Celia Ho, a 14 year old Hong Kong girl, whose magnificent letter was published in the South China Morning Post. A plea for elephants inspired by the National Geographic article, Blood Ivory. Youth has spoken!
Even better, Celia needs you; individuals, organizations and schools, to support her poster and add your voices to hers. Say no to ivory and yes to a total trade ban by CITES. Boopy has also created a web page for Celia to help spread the word, http://ecosysaction.org/celia's-corner
. Thank you for acting and confirming your support for Celia. She needs you!
A large majority of the ivory trade is destined for China. Approximately 70% of Chinese do not realize that it is necessary to kill an elephant to obtain the tusks. It is vital that Chinese are made aware. Eco-Sys Action and Boopy want to take up the challenge and also promote the work of other organizations. Together we can succeed!
