Global March for Eles, Rhinos and Lions by Alison Lee Rubie

This blog will be a little different from me. I wanted to invite you all to come and join The Feline Foundation, Animal Works and Lobby for Lions as we march for elephants, rhinos and lions on World Animal Day on October 4, 2014.

In March we had a Global March for Lions which raised awareness of their plight and encouraged governments to take steps to ban canned hunting. 62 cities across the world march and roared. This time 119 cities are involved and Sydney is one of them! If you are in Sydney and would like to join us, you can find more information HERE.

β€œOn October 4th people in cities throughout the world will march as one voice to save Elephants and Rhinos. The countdown to their extinction has begun. Unless action is taken now, we will lose these majestic, highly intelligent, and emotionally sentient creatures FOREVER. More than 35,000 elephants are being killed every year so their tusks can be carved into ivory trinkets. A rhino is slaughtered once every 9-11 hours for its horn. Their only hope for survival lies in an immediate end to the ivory and rhino horn trade (both "legal" and "illegal") and the chance to recover from decades of mass slaughter.” –Global March for Elephants, Rhinos and Lions.

The Sydney march will start at 11am at Town Hall. Please come along to help be a voice for these beautiful animals.

My next blog will feature the caracal. Stay tuned.
