Don't Buy Products That Endanger Animals!!!
Ten years ago there were over 1.5 million elephants on the earth. It's said that today there are 450,000 - 700,000 African elephants and between 35,000 - 40,000 wild Asian elephants. Ivory is still being taken from elephants killed by poachers. Americans purchase 30% of that ivory.
Over 6.5 million dolphins have been killed by tunafishermen. Fishing nets can reach ¾ mile in length and whatever gets trapped in them dies. Check the label of your tuna to make sure it is "dolphin-safe."
