Gabon & beyond: Criminals killing elephants in record numbers. I just signed letter to USA Secretary of State John Kerry

Have you seen all of the recent news coverage on elephants? It's an appallingly grim situation. Poachers seeking ivory – often linked to organized crime syndicates – are killing elephants in record numbers. In fact, today, 8 out of every 10 elephants die because of poaching.
I just sent Secretary of State Kerry a note welcoming him to the State Department and asking him to make sure that combating illegal wildlife trafficking remains a top priority. Will you do the same?
Thanks so much.
