Elephants slaughtered for Tusk

I was reading and article in National Geographic regarding the --National Geographic states that over 25000 elephants were killed last year for their ivory tusks. What has happened to our world.

Actor and activist Leonardo DiCaprio joined IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) today in calling for the world community to step up efforts to save elephants from poaching and the illegal ivory trade, which have escalated dramatically in recent years.
"In 2011 an unprecedented 24.3 tons of ivory was seized by government authorities worldwide, the largest amount recorded since the 1989 ivory ban. Tragically this trend is continuing in 2012," said DiCaprio, an IFAW Honorary Board member. "Widespread poaching is being recorded throughout Africa, even in areas in southern Africa that were previously considered safe for elephants. Just shameful waht man has done to these gentle giants.
I realize this has not one thing to do with Eureka Springs,and the Angel at Rose Hall, however I like from time to time to bring to attend matters that are important to me.
Plan to visit the Angel at Rose Hall,a Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast and Eureka SpringsWedding Chapel,plan your Eureka Springs vacation now,the Angel at Rose Hall is the best place for Eureka Springs lodging and Eureka Springs Weddings.
