Global March for Elephants and Rhinos
Join 134 cities in a Global March for Elephants and Rhinos – a 1.6km march from Berea Road to the City Hall – on Saturday 4 at 09h30.
Elephants and rhinos are being poached to extinction.
Join the march in Durban on Saturday 4 October, along with 134 cities around the world, to demand an end to the slaughter and the trade in ivory and rhino horn.
Without our help elephants and rhinos will not survive – the countdown to their extinction has begun. It’s up to all of us to ensure this tragic scenario never happens and they are given their last fighting chance to survive and recover their numbers.
Please march to save them! Spread the word and get your friends and family and colleagues to come along!
DETAILS ABOUT THE MARCH
Location: from 81 Berea Road (*By King Dinizulu Park which is opposite DUT)
Length of route: 1.6km
Meet at King Dinizulu Park at 09h30. Walk down Dr Pixie Kasame Street and to the Durban City Hall. We will hear our speaker and then hand over the “”DEMAND FOR PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO SOUTH AFRICAN LEGISLATION TO COMBAT RHINO POACHING AND CRIMES INVOLVING THREATENED OR PROTECTED SPECIES” to the city council.
The route is 1.6 km and will take around 30 – 45 minutes to walk. For those who would rather not walk the whole route, or have small children, you can meet us in Durban City Hall at 11h00.
This route will take us through the heart of Durban and its main shopping and tourist streets on a busy Saturday. This means the march will have maximum visibility and be seen (and heard!) by huge numbers of people, which is fantastic. So please take care as you march! We will be escorted by Durban Metro.
Where: 81 Berea Road, Durban
