Shanghai Metro – Save an Elephant

Tuesday, 2 July, 2013

Campaign by the UN to target end use consumers of Ivory by Save Wildlife poster campaign on the Metro.  Quote:“The fact is that many consumers in places like Asia are simply unaware that products like illegally sourced ivory and rhino horn come at a terrible price to the species and communities concerned.”Interesting analysis that leads to the question as to what views the PRC’s population holds on principal commodities regions - Africa for example, perceptions and misconceptions. Do the Chinese people know, or are even interested, in how state run gold mines operate overseas? Worth keeping in mind that a swathe of lethal, inefficient mines on Mainland China were shut down by Beijing a few years ago. Could promoting transparency back to China be possible and worth while regarding mining operations?http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=45317&Cr=UNEP&Cr1=#.UdKPHz770mk
