Speak Up Now to Save Elephants and Shop Compassionately with Vaute Couture!

Dear Friend,

Elephant poaching in Africa has reached crisis levels again and we need your help to stop the ivory trade. It is estimated that 35,000--maybe as many as 50,000--elephants are poached annually. What drives the slaughter? It’s all for the lucrative ivory market, which thrives in the United States.

New York is considered home to the largest ivory market in the U.S., so we must reduce the demand here for bloody ivory. Born Free USA, along with a coalition of other wildlife protection groups, is advocating for the introduction of a bill banning all ivory trade in New York. We need your help to make this happen! Please write to your elected officials today, asking them to introduce this crucial legislation.

We can’t stand by silently while elephants are again slaughtered across the continent. Now is the time to take action to save these intelligent, remarkable, gentle giants.

Sincerely,

Kate
