We’re marching for Elephants and Rhinos – Will you join us?
This is why:
96 elephants are killed every 24 hours for their ivory – 35,000 a year;
3 rhinos are killed every 24 hours for their horn – 1,000 a year;
2 lions are killed by trophy hunters every 24 hours - 665 lions a year
Marches are taking place throughout the Autumn of 2016 in over 130 cities worldwide, in time to apply pressure on delegates attending the Hanoi Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade to vote for the strictest possible protections for elephants and rhinos.
We invite you to join our march in November which gives you the opportunity to also be a voice for animals. It is a fun and exciting morning, full of positivity and energy. Our march will meet at 10:30am at Belmont Park in Exeter, commencing the march at 11am, we will walk up to the city centre where we will hand out leaflets to the public. We will stand proud and make peaceful noise so people pay attention to what is happening outside their doorstep.
You don’t have to be an activist to get involved, and families are welcome, all we ask is for you try to wear red (to represent blood) and bring enthusiasm, if you can then make a banner or a drum, bring them along and join in the fun!

We need to raise money for promotional materials such as leaflets to hand out on the day, supplies for the day and also to advertise the event.
