- Demand stopping the "TRADE" of wildlife.

- CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between governments. Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival.

- The United States is world's second largest consumer of poached ivory.

- Safari Club International - The world's largest hunting club, whose members pay thousands to kill elephants, lions, rhinos started their first club here in Los Angeles, CA

- The march will also serve to Educate by bringing public awareness and learning how we can take action to stop the killing of wildlife.

PLEASE only indicate "Going" if you'll be marching with us IN PERSON in Los Angeles!

PLEASE click "Maybe" if you can't make it but support us in spirit.

"Avoiding a true sixth mass extinction will require rapid, greatly intensified efforts to conserve already threatened species, and to alleviate pressures on their populations — notably habitat loss, overexploitation for economic gain and climate change," they write. All of these are related to human population size and growth, which increases consumption (especially among the rich), and economic inequity. However, the window of opportunity is rapidly closing." - Gerardo Ceballos
