TEACHERS: Watch live with your students on Friday, June 19. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will destroy more than one ton of ivory in Times Square, New York. We’re sending a message to poachers – ivory belongs to elephants! Let’s crush the ivory trade. 
 
#IvoryCrushHoA  

The global ivory trade is currently responsible for the brutal slaughter of as many as 35,000 elephants a year in Africa-- that's one elephant every 15 minutes or 96 elephants a day. As this crisis continues, nonprofit and governmental organizations are working together to stop the killing, stop the trafficking, and stop the demand. 

On Friday, the US will crush over 1 ton of ivory in NYC's Times Square, signifying that ivory poaching and illegal wildlife trafficking will not be tolerated. Join WCS and our partners: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, NY Department of Environmental Conservation, African Wildlife Foundation, Humane Society, IFAW, NRDC, and WWF, for a Google+ Hangout on Air including a virtual tour of the crush hosted by WCS's Erin Prada, as well as speeches, views of the massive crusher, celebrity cameos, and an exclusive Q&A session with experts working to save elephants. Ask your questions via the Q&A app or by using the hashtag #IvoryCrushHoA . Hope you can tune in!

Great job managing a live HOA! Just a tip, the Showcase App, Q&A App and Applause app for HOA's don't play nice so be sure to turn off what you don't want to use before you go live. I couldn't use the Q&A and wonder if these comments are checked during the live event.

Saving Wildlife and Wild Places
Introduction
The Wildlife Conservation Society, founded in 1895, has the clear mission to save wildlife and wild places across the globe. Our story began in the early 1900’s when we successfully helped the American bison recover on the Western Plains. Today, we protect many of the world’s iconic creatures here and abroad, including gorillas in the Congotigers in Indiawolverines in the Yellowstone Rockies, and ocean giants in our world’s amazing seascapes.
