Iconic rock guitarist Slash has partnered with International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) to raise awareness of the slaughter of elephants which is leading to their early extinction. Slash and singer Myles Kennedy composed the song 'Beneath the Savage Sun' to help IFAW stop the needless slaughter of elephants for their ivory tusks and raise awareness of the global elephant crisis. Proceeds of the sale of the digital downloads of this song will go to IFAW. The U.S.-based charity IFAW works around the world on every aspect of the elephant crisis on the front lines to stop the killing of elephants, in transit countries to stop the trafficking of ivory and in consumer countries to stop the demand for ivory products.

“An elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory and the result is the elephant population has declined 95% in the past century" Slash says "Seeing that these majestic animals are on the path to extinction, possibly within the next decade, we wrote ‘Beneath The Savage Sun’ and partnered with IFAW. Donate to IFAW’s work to take action and protect elephants”
