Maggie Q Embraces Elephant Conservation & Advocates For The End Of Wildlife Poaching

allafrica.com

Actress, model and WildAid ambassador Maggie Q is currently in Kenya raising awareness about elephant conservation and advocating for others to help stop the demand for illegal wildlife products; specifically those made from ivory and rhino horn.

“It always blows me away to witness the individuality of elephants. EVERY time. And these are elephants who have been orphaned by US. And yet, they still allow us to be apart of their healing- and depend on one another for the same. These animals have come from terror, pain and loss. They just want to heal. Like anyone…David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, you are the light,” states Maggie.

According to WildAid, “while most wildlife conservation groups focus on protecting animals from poaching, WildAid works to reduce global consumption of wildlife products by persuading consumers and strengthening enforcement.”

Currently starring in ABC’s political drama Designated Survivor, the busy vegetarian and avid animal activist, managed to share some special moments during her trip via Instagram.

‘’Day 1. Kenya. After my breakfast and before theirs, I’m blessed enough to receive orphan love at the rehabilitation center in Nairobi. I am flying off soon to the second camp where these young babies will be transferred to one day.

There, they will be cared for until they are ready to be integrated back into the wild. Watch this space. @dswt #stoppoachingnow #dwst #heyjambojambo #home@robertcarrhartley.’’ She posted.
