As I was driving thru Haverhill Saturday, I spotted a billboard on route 110 that had a picture of an elephant on it, and it was addressing the illegal ivory trade. It was partially covered by tree limbs/leaves, so I could not see it all... Has anyone else seen this? Do you know what it says of who put it up/sponsored it? Or where exactly it is? Thanks!

I saw an ad in a magazine recently (like over the weekend) that had a picture of an elephant and the heading was "They Are Not Trinkets" or something to that effect. Then it went on to say how many elephants were killed just for the ivory, to make trinkets for people to wear. I don't know who it was sponsored by or anything.

Evidently it's the World Wildlife Fund. Never heard of it, but this is what Google turned up:
