Visiting Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda, East Africa was a spectacular experience. I saw beautiful elephants living together in family groups. Their tusks are stunning and gargantuan. How can poachers and criminals be so heartless, slaughtering these animals in cold-blood and cutting of their tusks, as the young elephants watch helplessly? It’s beyond my comprehension. This experience inspires me to do all I can to protect elephants. Actions must be taken to stop the ivory trade.
