Rockin’ for the Love of Elephants

African elephants in front of Kilimanjaro

Slash, the legendary guitarist from Guns N’ Roses never ceases to amaze me. Aside from playing the electric guitar like no one else on the planet, he is also an IFAW spokesperson speaking out against the ivory trade. He wrote a song called “Beneath the Savage Sun” from an elephant’s perspective. This video, which features the song, is a must watch despite its gut-wrenching clips. The barbaric slaughter of these majestic, caring, family-oriented, wise, and peaceful elephants for jewellery, trinkets, and musical instruments is beyond a disgrace. IFAW says that on average, an elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its tusks. MIND BLOWING. We need to BAN together to BAN the ivory trade – before it’s too late. Together, let’s protect our elephants – now.
