Haunting Image Spreads Awareness of Ivory Consequences

Famous basketball player Yao Ming teamed up with photographer Kristian Schmidt to raise awareness of the threats facing rhinos and elephants as a result of demand for ivory and rhino horn, particularly in China. With this haunting and breathtaking image, they are hoping to reduce the demand on illegal poaching and ivory sales.
