Therefore members of the public will join the conversation physically and on social media using the hashtag #Tweet4Elephant
#Tweet4Elephants is a global social media event following the very successful earlier 1st edition on 13th January by the US Ambassador, Robert. F. Godec, that reached 36 million Twitter accounts and making over 126 million impressions on social media.
The live debate involves two teams one led by conservationists, the other by a respected journalist, Charles Onyango-Obbo. Members of our teams include activists, experts, economists, media and communities.
The event is pitched as a duel, and it is a friendly, fun, educational and entertaining debate.

On the other hand, authorities claim that a restriction of rights is necessary to maintain societal security. In protecting one, there is always the risk of undermining the other.
