British singer Elton John,actress Nicole Kidman among other Hollywood celebrities expected in Kenya in a summit to torch ivory
According to this news site several A-list celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio will attend a summit in the country to witness the burning of illegal ivory to ash.
The summit has been organised by Russian billionaire Evgeny Lebedev and will be hosted by President Uhuru Kenyatta. This is in a bid to discourage poaching of elephants mostly for this ivory. The date has not yet been confirmed.
Is this summit important and should celebrities even attend?
*Most people look up to prominent people in the society and the more they take positive action against illegal activities such as poaching,it only drives the message home deeply
*Such a move is likely to bring international attention to the country and this is in turn will ensure we get all the help we need to save our wildlife
Sorry,the summit is by invite-only,so you ain’t gate crashing.
What is your take on the issue?
