Hillary Rodham Clinton was honored at the The Wildlife Conservation Society Gala in New York. Appearing with her daughter Chelsea, they were honored for the Clinton Global Initiative’s work to protect animals, specifically elephants. Clinton highlighted the issue saying, “We’ve reached a crisis point and 96 elephants a day [killed] is just a horrifying number. At this rate African forest elephants will be extinct within ten years. So we don’t have any time left.” Clinton also praised the New York State Assembly which recently passed a bill banning the sale of ivory in New York.

A video from the event will be posted when/if available.
