AWF Launches Anti-Ivory Campaign
 
  AWF Launches Celebrity Anti-Ivory Campaign

This spring AWF announced the launch of a public awareness campaign in Asia to combat the rhino horn trade, with partner WildAid and former NBA star Yao Ming. In exciting news for elephants, we are now also launching an ivory demand reduction campaign in China with WildAid and Save the Elephants—as well as celebrities like Yao Ming, NBA star Jeremy Lin, and China's leading actress Li Bingbing.
