An avid animal advocate, Cleary teamed with Global Guardian Designs on the one-of-a-kind ring; significant portion of proceeds to be donated to protect endangered African elephants
Animal loving and fashion forward people searching for a one-of-a-kind gift this holiday season that is as unique as it is compassionate and charitable will be thrilled to know that the brilliant new Peace 4 Animals Elephant Conservation Ring is now available for purchase at Peace4Animals.net.
A big ring for a big problem, the Elephant Conservation Ring is a collaboration between noted animal advocate and founder of the non-profit Peace 4 Animals, Katie Cleary, who is also a highly-successful model, actress, filmmaker and entrepreneur, and Global Guardian Designs, which designs a wide array of beautifully hand crafted pieces that sustainably give back to many different charities and causes. Created to support Peace 4 Animals Project Endangered Species, the Elephant Conservation Ring was designed by Global Guardian Designs co-owner Fia Perera and is made of sterling silver .925 with sapphire gemstones for eyes.
A significant portion of the proceeds from rings sold will go towards protecting endangered African elephants though several anti-poaching partners on the ground in Africa. Many of which, specialize in training community rangers throughout parks in Africa to combat the poaching epidemic.
“Every fifteen minutes an elephant is killed for its’ ivory in Africa,” said Cleary who noted that in 2013, more than 35,000 elephants across Africa were killed for their ivory, which is often carved and sold as ornaments, jewelry and other trinkets. “Our Elephant Conservation Ring is a beautiful and unique gift, which is even more extraordinary because it is created to help protect the remaining elephants in Africa which conservationists warn could become completely extinct by 2020.”
A multi-billion-dollar industry, China is a major importer of illegal ivory, where it’s highly prized as a luxury item that is made of dentine with an outer layer of enamel, the same components as the human tooth. Ivory dealers also trade in Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and other parts of Asia; and shockingly, the demand seems to be rising.
“Despite the efforts on behalf of many organizations to mitigate the devastating effects brought on by the poaching crisis, more needs to be done to save these truly majestic creatures.” continued Cleary who has garnered a reputation as a leader in the animal welfare community in Los Angeles and internationally; raising tens of thousands of dollars for many animal organizations around the world in support of the most crucial animal issues.
Among her many distinctions, Cleary is also the creator and executive producer of the 2015 Award-Winning Documentary Give Me Shelter which aired on Netflix and is the Founder and Producer of the network World Animal News on the popular animal news site WorldAnimalNews.com. WAN highlights the latest breaking animal welfare issues happening around the globe with guests ranging from the top animal welfare organizations, animal experts and celebrities who are passionate about raising awareness for important animal issues.
