I wanted to share this great news with you all for a change. This is a great day for elephants and rhinos, so endangered for the bloody traffic of ivory.

A tough battle won by the efforts of all the activists that never sleep and leave their lives in favor of animal life. Now we have to deal with the illegal trade is another tough battle, but with the government side of the activists will be something else. Thanks to everyone who has given this battle for so long without leaving a day. God bless you abundantly.

Obviously i'm hoping for the best but i'm very doubtful that any real change will come from it. In my opinion this meeting will no doubt resemble that of the typical United Nations meet and greet which nothing is ever accomplished from them. Thanks

Alone we can do almost nothing. Together we can save our planet for our children and our grandchildren.

This has just about taken my breath away - a victory for our precious animals. I pray they implement this asap as these poor animals desperately need divine intervention.

Pledges and petitions in WWF signed.

Good news for Elephants.

Those caught with any part(s) of an Elephant should get 50 years in prison.
China and other countries around the World need to be more vigilant against Elephant Ivory and other parts
of an Elephant.

Rhinos need protections as well as one specie has already gone extinct in our current time. We must
protect Rhinos!

Ty, Melania.
