Make a Pledge for Elephants!
Approximately 96 elephants are killed for their tusks every day in Africa. Our partners at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) took action, using the number 96 to emphasize the problem — thus "96 Elephants" became the rally cry for likeminded conservation organizations.
Last spring 96 students from Lawrence Township stood up for elephants http://tinyurl.com/mgxh44d . We are now looking for 96 teachers to pledge to do an activity with their students to bring awareness to the plight of Africa's elephants. For more information on how your school can participate, contact Tolly Foster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
