On August 3rd, Save Animals Facing Extinction joined with the Wildlife Conservation Society and several other groups to crush two tons of elephant ivory at an event in New York City’s Central Park.
That took ivory valued at nearly $8 million it off the market forever!
That means fewer profits for poachers, which means fewer elephants murdered for their tusks.

Events like this are literally saving elephants’ lives. And none of it would be possible without your support.
We were there live to capture this important event:
Every time you sign a petition, take a poll, or donate even a single dollar, you save a life.
But we can’t slow down for even one second.
There are still poachers out there, hunting down elephants and slaughtering them for their tusks.
The poachers aren’t stopping, so neither are we.
