October 4, 2013: The San Francisco March for Elephants began in Portsmouth Square, wound its way through Chinatown, ending in Union Square where a rally was held. During the march, a memorial service was held in front of two Chinatown ivory stores. The service was a tribute to elephants who have died and to the rangers who have been killed trying to protect them.
It is estimated that 25,000 to 40,000 elephants are being killed annually across Africa so their tusks can be carved into trinkets. Unless urgent action is taken to end the slaughter, conservationists are predicting that elephants could disappear in 10 years.
