Buy a Necklace - Save an Elephant
Did you know that the elephant population is in rapid decline?
Elephants are already in danger, but that doesn't stop poachers from trapping them to collect Ivory! In the past year alone, over 50,000 elephants have been caught in their snare traps.
If this barbaric practice doesn't stop soon, elephants may become extinct within the next 10 years!
THE SAD TRUTH ABOUT WIRE TRAPS
One of man's most cruel and inhumane inventions is the snare wire trap. Poachers set these traps in order to collect Ivory from the tusks of their victims.
When an Elephant is caught in a barbaric wire trap, his initial reaction is to panic as he struggles to free himself. Unfortunately, this only makes it 10x worse...
Because of the way these traps are engineered, wire ends up tightening around the leg until hitting bone. Tragically, the elephants are then left to suffer until they experience a slow and agonizing death.
It is truly heartbreaking!
CONFISCATING TRAPS IS THE VITAL FIRST STEP
By removing these brutal wire traps from harms reach, we are able to greatly reduce the number of elephants they can injure per day.
Each confiscated trap is a huge victory for us, as it means another elephant's death has been prevented!
But in order to take it a step further, we decided to transform them into a powerful catalyst for saving them.
TURNING THE CRUELTY INTO BEAUTY
Matavita necklaces are not only fashion forward, but socially concious.
Staff and volunteers work tirelessly to collect traps from the wild and pass them on to be melted down into jewelry.
Each necklace is then dipped into plating to ensure that the color is uniform. This also allows us to offer a gold color, in addition to silver!
