The world’s elephant population is in rapid decline. Due to the high demand for ivory, it is estimated that one elephant is killed every 15 minutes for their tusks. At this rate, elephants may go extinct from the wild within the next two decades. But, we have the power to change that. The future of elephants is in our hands, and it starts by raising awareness.

Comedian Ricky Gervais has a well-deserved reputation as a defender of animals. He’s a celeb who’s no stranger to using the power of social media to spread awareness about animals who need our help. So, when The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) launched a social media campaign aimed at raising awareness for elephants, called #InOurHands, you can bet that Ricky was on board. With just one small action, he’s helped to inspire millions to stand up for this struggling population.

What Ricky Gervais Has in His Hand Could Change the World

 

 

The fate of the world’s elephants is literally in our hands and we are running out of time to help them. Although it might seem like a small thing for Ricky Gervais to post a photo of his hand – this one act alone has the power to raise much-needed awareness for the world’s elephants. Many people still do not know that the U.S. is the second largest market for illegal ivory – while others aren’t even aware that in order to create ivory trinkets and jewelry, an elephant has to die!

With the future for elephants laying in the balance, we are so pleased that Ricky Gervais is standing up to spread the word these animals need our help.

You can join Gervais by supporting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and avoiding ivory at all costs.  To learn more about how you can help elephants, check out the posts below:
