Join us in at a protest outside the Chinese embassy in London to call on China to take urgent steps to help stop the slaughter of elephants for their ivory.

We call on China to close its ivory-carving factories, to close its ivory retail outlets, and to end its domestic ivory trade. As the world’s leading consumer of ivory (over 70% of illegal ivory makes its way to China, to be carved into trinkets for affluent Chinese), China has the biggest role and responsibility in ensuring the survival of elephants in Africa.

Unless China’s leaders take these urgent steps, we will soon be witnessing the last days on earth of these majestic, supremely intelligent and emotionally sentient creatures, who are being wiped out by poachers at the rate of around 100 EVERY DAY.

If China takes the lead to save them, it will gain the respect and gratitude of people the world over. Also, it would be the single most important move to stop the trans-national criminal networks of poachers and ivory traffickers, and to halt the involvement of terrorist groups which are funded in part by ‘blood ivory’.

We are pleased to have as speakers at the event Dominic Dyer from Care for the Wild International and Dr Trevor Jones from Southern Tanzania Elephant Project.

Date: Saturday 25th January 2015

Time:   12.30pm to 2.30pm

venue: Outside Chinese Embassy, London   (Address:  Chinese Embassy, 49-51 Portland Place, W1B 1JL London, United Kingdom)

Nearest Tube: Regent’s Park
