James Costa Event

Less than a couple months ago, I hosted an event at my home in the Hollywood Hills to raise awareness and funds for the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s fight to save elephants.

I was pleased to see the remarkable turnout of community leaders and celebrities, but couldn’t help wondering if they would understand and truly embrace the need for immediate action. I worried that with so many causes, and so many global crises, the fight to stop poachers before they kill would be an endless uphill battle.

The outpouring of support that evening gave me renewed hope for the future.  People were aware of the crisis and hungry for the type of solutions IFAW provides.  At the end of the evening I felt the tide was turning … and now, look at the victories we are celebrating:

Of course, we still have a LONG way to go, but the public and world leaders are united like never before.

Africa’s rangers are finally receiving the support they need to stop poachers before they kill.  And countless people are campaigning for a complete ban on ivory trade and real protections for elephants in danger.

With persistence, and commitment, we can win this fight.

Just look at how far we’ve already come in just two months’ time!
