Many of our guests love elephants and we often include elephant experiences as a big part of their holiday. We read this article and it reminded us how threatened elephants are in Africa. The article states that one elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory tusks.

Unfortunately this is not an April Fools joke. This is the harsh reality. So from one elephant lover to another, please help protect elephants. Read on to find out the true cost of buying any ivory in this article by Latrice Harrison.
