Retired NBA player Yao Ming has been involved in anti poaching campaigns. It is so great when a celebrity speaks to the public on behalf of animals. The animals cannot speak for themselves so they need a voice! Much of the ivory sold on the black market is sold in Ming’s home country, China, so it was very honorable for him to speak to his country about this problem. Thanks for being a friend to the elephants Yao!!
