WHAT DO CLIMATE CHANGE, ELEPHANTS AND WILD HORSES HAVE IN COMMON? It’s a CELEBRATION of Elephants and ALL Endangered Wildlife
WHAT DO ELEPHANTS, WHALES AND WILD HORSES HAVE IN COMMON?
Connection Africa (CA 4 Elephants, Inc.), a 501c3 non-profit) will be hosting an environmental event to honor global efforts to save our majestic elephants along with Earth’s delicate bio-diverse environments and other endangered wildlife. This event will take place International Elephants Day, August 12, 2017. CA will bring experts to speak at the California State Capital (North side), between 10:30am and 3:00pm.
This event was originally titled the 2nd Ivory Surrender. We renamed this year, to “Celebration for Elephants and ALL ENDNAGERED Wildlife”. While Connection Africa’s focus is primarily on elephants, as scientists predict that we have entered the 6th Extinction – it has become more important to connect the dots between elephants, whales and other endangered species.
With only 350,000 left in all of Africa, many are working night and day to prevent them from falling into EXTINCTION. However, elephants are not the only species facing potential extinction. As such, this year’s event will include a broader platform.
2017 SPEAKERS include:
This event is family oriented. The Global March for elephants will co-host our youth area, making learning FUN where children will have hand’s on (age appropriate) projects and activities.
The Center for biological Diversity, will present their works through science, law and creative media to secure a future for all species, great or small, hovering on the brink of extinction. Sponsored by, EL TAPATO Restaurant of Citrus Heights. ——– Connection Africa (CA 4 Elephants, Inc.) is a 501c3 non-profit working in three areas: Education, Legislative support and Sustainability.
