Our Wildlife Initiative partners at WildAid have introduced a bold new campaign asking everyone to #JoinTheHerd.

Now you can join Lupita Nyong’o, Maggie Q, Yao Ming and more to finally make a change with these five easy ways to get involved:

1) Create your own #JoinTheHerd Image

Go to the Year of the Elephant website and simply upload your own image to create a personalized #JoinTheHerd profile photo, that can be shared across any social media platform – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – the more, the better.

2) Grow your herd

Ask your friends and family to #JoinTheHerd with their own profile photo, or using the hashtag. The more people that are aware of the problem, the more likely they are to stand up against it. WildAid's amazing progress this past year would not have been possible without people around the world speaking out and encouraging those they know to never buy or accept ivory products.

3) Sign the Pledge and be #IvoryFree

Pledge to be part of the solution. Pledge to live ivory free. Help save Africa’s remaining elephants and join the #IvoryFree movement with worldwide ambassadors like Prince William and Lupita Nyong’o.

4) Create a Year of the Elephant Poster

Everyone from graphic designers to children chose to #JoinTheHerd by creating their own “Year of the Elephant” posters to display in their community.

5) Be a Voice for Change

If ivory trade is legal in your country or state, be the one to start the change, or find those who are working in your community to save the elephants.
