Global March for elephants, rhinos

Elephantopia is participating in the third annual Global March for Elephants and Rhinos this October 3 and 4. We are hosting a benefit concert at First Magnitude Brewing from 4–7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3, featuring live bands (Blue Slammers and Melting Funk Pot), an opportunity to sign a letter to Florida legislature calling for an ivory ban, and raffle to support an orphaned elephant in Zambia at the GRI – Elephant Orphanage Project. This event is FREE and open to the public.

Come out on Sunday, Oct. 4, at 10:30 a.m. to march through Gainesville with Conservation Initiative for the Asian Elephant — we begin at Plaza de Americas at UF.
