Chelsea Clinton pushed for elephant protections during a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting Tuesday.

During an appearance at the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting, the daughter of former president Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed her concern about the threat to African elephants. “The child Marc and I are waiting to bring into this world could grow up in a planet without elephants,” Chelsea Clinton said in a speech Tuesday. Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child any day now. She called elephant poaching a moral and ecological disaster as well as a security threat because the ivory is used as currency by some terrorist groups. Hillary Clinton also spoke out against poaching and said her daughter has made elephant protection a priority for the Clinton Foundation. — Read it at ABC News and watch it at Science Daily
