JOHANNESBURG, Nov 13, 2015:
The Terminator is campaigning to save African elephants from poachers.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is featured in a new video in which he brandishes a tusk and appeals for an end to the slaughter of elephants. The video, which was released today, then shows the tusk being wired with explosives and blown up.
The action star of the “Terminator” series says in the video: “Let’s get rid of the demand once and for all.”
The video was made on behalf of the Wildlife Conservation Society, a group based at New York’s Bronx Zoo.
The group says the Los Angeles Zoo donated the tusk that was blown up on the video. It says eight countries have publicly destroyed more than 42 tons of illegal ivory this year.
