    Roadtrip!

    Elephants troop to a water hole at the Amboseli national reserve November 13th at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The first delegation of the China-Africa Wildlife Ambassadors (CAWA) drawn from some of China's media corporations including JC Decaux China, iFENG.com, Beijing MTR Corporation, Shenzhen Press Group, Fulong Media and DEEP magazine arrived in Kenya as part of China's strategy to use iconic members of society to speak up against ivory trade and mobilizing society to stigmatize ivory consumption. In September this year, Chinese president Xi Jinping announced that China will take significant and timely steps to halt the domestic commercial trade of ivory thought to spur, on average, a killing of an elephant every 15 minutes for its ivory accirding to the International Fund for Animal Welfare.
