Elephants are being brutally slaughtered and on the brink of extinction. One elephant is killed for its ivory tusks every 15 minutes. Ivory is sold illegally in China for up to $1,000 a pound - a price that encourages even more wanton killing of these magnificent animals.
This Friday, October 4, John Quinones, Emmy Award winner for Primetime Live," and "20/20" will moderate a discussion of an international panel of experts including:
- William Clark: Coordinator of INTERPOL'S Project WISDOM which supports the law enforcement capability for the conservation of elephants and rhinoceros.
- Iain Douglas-Hamilton: one of the world's foremost authorities on the social behavior of the African elephant.
- Patrick Omondi: Deputy Director of the Kenyan Wildlife Service. Kenya runs one of the most effective anti-poaching efforts in Africa.
- James C. Deutch: Dr. Deutsch directs the Africa Program of the Wildlife Conservation Society with a field staff of over 1,300 people dedicated to saving Africa's iconic wildlife and preserving rapidly disappearing wild places.
