Born Free back CITES decision to end plans for future ivory trade | Coastweek

A keystone species on which many plants and animals indirectly depend, elephants are found in forests, maintaining tracks through the otherwise impenetrable undergrowth and dispersing seeds, while also being the epitome of the African savannah. However, they are in peril, threatened by the ivory trade and conflict with humans these iconic mammals need our help. The 'Disappearing Animals' campaign, created by WCRS, aims to prompt people to take action before it’s too late. Shot by award-winning photographer George Logan – in locations in The Masai Mara, Kenya, Etosha, Namibia and at Shamwari, South Africa – the campaign draws attention to the futility of saving the last lion, rhino or elephant on Earth. Instead, action needs to be taken to start saving the animals now, while there is still time to make a difference. PHOTO - GEORGE LOGAN - BORN FREE FOUNDATION
