A video from the elephant girl

Posted by Peter MUIR

Celia Ho, a 14-year-old student from True Light Girls College in Kowloon, has made a name for herself as “The elephant girl” for her internationally recognized work in preventing the illegal ivory trade.   Here is a story on her work featured in the South China Morning Post last September.

You too can assist Celia in her work. Here is he organisations Facebook page where you can find more details.  Below is a message from Celia about a new promotional video she has produced.

To spread the ivory ban idea and reach schools as far as possible, I filmed a 12-min video introducing the history and impact of ivory trade, habits of elephants and my ‘Schools United for Elephants’ campaign, in both English and Mandarin, directed by Miss Josefina Bergsten. The English version is presented first (with a quote from ‘BloodIvory’).  Hope you enjoy and please feel free to comment and share.
