Elephant poaching is at its highest level in decades and it continues to rise. More than 35,000 elephant were killed in 2013 for the illegal ivory trade. These animals are being slaughtered across Africa to meet an insatiable global demand for ivory. Scores of the park rangers who work to protect them have also been killed.
We’re asking for your help in turning the crushed ivory into educational tools that can be distributed around the country. Through this pro-bono design challenge, you have the opportunity to create a compelling, thought provoking, informative and impactful display to increase awareness about our fight against illegal wildlife trade.

Whether they are known for their powerhouse vocals and intoxicating talent or their over-the-top, won’t-stop, vogue-til-youdrop
life and style, a true diva is a muse to the masses. With public response shifting between veneration and vilification,
divas captivate, terrify and inspire. They unapologetically demand devotion while remaining utterly unapproachable, keeping
the world at a measured distance.
