The world stands up for rhinos and elephants
On Saturday 4th October, which is World Animal Day, the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos will take place and is set to be the biggest ever global movement on behalf of animals.
Thousands of people will take to the streets in 130 cities around the world to raise awareness of the plight faced by these critically endangered animals.
The Global March for Elephants and Rhinos will aim to achieve the implementation of tougher penalties for wildlife crime, a full worldwide ban on the trade of ivory and rhino horn, and the strengthening of law enforcement in consumer countries and range states. In addition, they will also make the demand that ivory and rhino shops and carving factories are shut down immediately.
The marches will take place in key cities across the US, South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia. In the UK there will be marches in Bristol, Birmingham, and Edinburgh as well as in London.
Maria Mossman from Action4Elephants is co-organising the London march. She says: “We’re just ordinary people who care about these extraordinary animals. It would be devastating and criminal if elephants and rhinos went extinct within 20 years, but that is the frightening reality. It could happen. It will happen, if something isn’t done. The Global March for Elephants and Rhinos is a way for people around the world to show that we’re not going to accept it.”
Care for the Wild International will be supporting the event. The charity’s CEO Philip Mansbridge commented on the marches taking place around the world: “By backing the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos, we’re saying it’s not just our problem, it’s your problem. Everyone. Who among us wasn’t amazed the first time we saw a picture of an elephant or a rhino? But beyond the sentiment, these animals are vital to the planet, and it’s vital to us as a species that we save them, otherwise we’ve failed. So please take to the streets on October 4th to show that we all care.”
The London march starts at 1pm in Cavendish Square, and finishes at 3pm in Parliament Square.
