CoP17 is the world’s biggest conference on the international wildlife trade.

Delegates will cast votes that impact the fate of elephants, rhinos and other endangered species.

We need a massive global turnout to pressure delegates to vote for the strictest protections possible.

We #MarchAgainstExtinction and demand our governments take action to STOP the poaching of elephants and rhinos and END the trade in ivory and rhino horn.

More than 130 cities around the world participated in the 2015 Global March for Elephants and Rhinos.

“According to experts, these marches keep political pressure on leaders to protect the world’s largest land animal.”

Good news for elephants? Ivory prices plummet.
