Blood Ivory: The Elephant Crisis
Monday, June 3rd
5pm - Elephants are highly intelligent animals with complex social behaviors. A recent surge in illegal killings of African elephants has been fueled by increasing demand for ivory. Estimated tens of thousands of elephants have been killed every year, raising concerns about the survival of this iconic African species.
