In the wake of the last few Chinese horror stories including the big Chinese buying trip to Tanzania and the abduction of 35 baby elephants (one of whom has already died) the grassroots advocacy movement “Global March for Elephants and Rhinos” is asking cities to organize protests all over the world at Chinese Consulates on January 24th OR if you can’t participate or organize a protest – to join in a mail campaign. Please follow the details of these campaigns here and join the mail campaign here.
