Today in Central Park there was a HUGE #ivorycrush destroying nearly 2 tons of illegal ivory adding up to around 8 million dollars worth of ivory. Educate yourselves on the Ivory trade and animal trafficking so we can stop the demand for ivory. Thank you @humanesociety @africanwildlifefoundation @action4ifaw @natgeo @tiffanyandco @lavegan 🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘

Such an incredible day, getting to work with @action4ifaw & @mickfleetwoodofficial at the #CentralPark #IvoryCrush. While somber knowing the two tons of ivory we crushed represented 100 dead elephants 🐘, it also ensures that ivory never gets reintroduced back into the market, where it would only fuel more demand, and, in turn, more elephants being killed. ❀️🐘

Today in Central Park in New York City, 2 tons of ivory were destroyed. This ivory was taken from an estimated 100 elephants killed illicitly. With a black market street value of $10 million, trafficking in ivory is big business for terrorist cartels and funds violence and corruption worldwilde. Sadly, the largest markets for ivory are the U.S. and China, and each day 96 elephants are slaughtered and maimed so their tusks can be become trinkets like the ones pictured. All this ivory was confiscated in New York over the last two years.
Today was an important message that the illegal trade in ivory will not be tolerated here in the U.S., thanks to the leadership of the state of New York, the Wildlife Conservation Society, The Association of Zoos and Aquariums and 96 Elephants.
Zoo Knoxville Board member Chelly Clayton, a true advocate for animals both locally and globally, was invited to attend the event by the Wildlife Conservation Society. Zoo CEO and President Lisa New accompanied her and participated with other AZA representatives in placing ivory in the crusher. We're proud that Chelly and Lisa were there on behalf of Zoo Knoxville to be a voice for elephants worldwide. To find out how you can help save elephants, visit 96elephants.org. #ivorycrush
