Global March for Elephants & Rhinos
Circus Protests Rock for Elephants & Rhinos
This was the first march for Denver and Boulder to rally for elephants & rhinos where over 130 cities worldwide marched in solidarity with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness on the plight of elephants, rhinos and all wildlife being wiped out for the sake of human greed and superstition. More than 35,000 elephants are being killed every year so their tusks can be carved into ivory trinkets. A rhino is slaughtered once every 9-11 hours for its horn. Their only hope for survival lies in an immediate end to the ivory and rhino horn trade (both "legal" and "illegal") and the chance to recover from decades of mass slaughter.
Animal Action organized a successful protest of Ringling Brothers cruel and inhumane treatment of animals in their circus.
Efforts are part of a growing movement, exposing what circus animal performers endure, all in the name of entertainment. Countries around the world, as well as many municipalities here in the US, have already banned the use of wild animals in circuses.
The animals in circuses spend most of their days in trailers, cages, or chains. Circus animals are being deprived of five basic freedoms: freedom from pain, injury or disease; freedom from hunger and thirst; freedom from fear and distress; freedom from discomfort; and freedom to express normal behaviors.
