TORONTO- A global demonstration is taking place Friday in support of the world’s elephant population.
The “International March for Elephants” will be held in about 40 cities, including Toronto, New York, London and San Francisco.
Brian Nasimok is the organizer of the Toronto chapter of the march and he said elephants need to be protected.
“The ivory trade will eradicate all elephants in Africa by 2025 unless something is done about it,” said Nasimok, “our march is there for education and awareness.”
The Toronto march begins at noon, Friday at Trinity Square, just behind the Eaton Centre.
