Poaching elephants for ivory has risen to historical levels over the last several years. In 2013 alone, at least 33,000 elephants were illegally killed, equating to one elephant every 16 minutes. At these rates, a world without elephants in our lifetime is a possibility.
One of the many reasons I'm proud to be a @WildAid
ambassador is their mission to end the illegal wildlife trade in our lifetimes, and work towards a world where people no longer buy wildlife products such as shark fin, elephant ivory and rhino horn. @WildAid
works to reduce global consumption of wildlife products by persuading consumers and strengthening enforcement.
This is just one of the incredible conservation organizations the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation supports.
