Stop the Buying…Stop the Killing

Friday, March 8th, 2013

While searching the internet for an interesting article concerning wildlife conservation, I came across an unusual ad that ran during an Oklahoma City Thunder – New York Knicks game Thursday night.  The ad featured center for the Knicks, Tyson Chandler. It was only a 30 second spot but it paralleled the elephant in his habitat alongside the basketball players in theirs. It showed piles of elephant tusks that had been cut off the elephant carcasses.  The message was simple, as Tyson said, “Please support conservation, never buy products made from ivory…because when the buying stops, the killing can, too”.
