Please join the march for Elephants and Rhinos in Durban on 3 October 2015 at 10h00 - 13h00 on Snell Parade, Beach Front.
Durban will be joining over 100 other cities around the globe in organizing a MARCH and speaking out for elephants and rhinos on 3 October 2105. We'll gather at the Amphitheatre area demanding an end to the ivory and rhino horn trade in China, Vietnam, the USA, and an end to the trade anywhere ivory and rhino horn are commoditized. Last year, in 2014, more than 135 cities from all seven continents marched around the world in solidarity for elephants and rhinos.
