Johannesburg - Oscar winning actress and global superstar, Lupita Nyong'o has added her voice to calls to stop elephant poaching.
“I have come to realize that when you know more‚ you do more," Lupita said in a statement.
"I want to encourage people all over the world to learn more about these incredible animals. I ask the world to end the current elephant poaching crisis by being ‘Ivory Free.’ It is time to ban sales of ivory worldwide and to consign the tragedy of the ivory trade to history,” she added.
And just to prove how serious she's taking her new role (or how bad ass she is), she even posed with a giant wild elephant!
