Not the elephants too!


What can one person do to stand in the way of the illegal poaching of endangered species for their body parts? I know it seems daunting but think about this: if the demand for the ivory or tiger bone or bear gall disappeared, so would the market for selling those parts. And the killing would stop. If we as a collective species stopped decorating with ivory and turning a blind eye to 'traditional medicines' that contain tiger parts then we would make a serious dent in the profitability of killing them. So who's with me? I, for one, vow to never use a single product that contains anything from a tiger or a bear. And I will never wear, decorate with, or purchase ivory. Now who is willing to stand up with me and, in their own small but powerful way, make the same statement?
