URGENT: Please boycott companies that sell Ivory as it’s driving species into extinction – including parrots!
Poachers in Chad, Africa, have ruthlessly killed 86 elephants, including 33 pregnant females, in less than a week. These elephants, like many others, were killed for their ivory.
It is this kind of behavior – the killing of animals for superficial items without regard for the well being of the species as a whole or for the individuals being killed – that was responsible for the extinction of many species in the past. The recklessness of such poachers continues to push species to the brink of extinction, including parrots. Please, do not buy products containing ivory or support the companies who use it. Have a look at the original article and spread the word if you agree.
