From the moving story today on NPR’s Morning Edition: “Retired NBA player Yao Ming has embarked on a mission to stop the poaching of elephants and rhinos in Africa. Yao stars in the Animal Planet documentary Saving Africa’s Giants With Yao Ming.” Yao is working with the WildAid organization’s anti-poaching campaign to target the consumption of ivory and rhino horn in China. The film’s broadcast premiere is tonight. Yao Ming wrote a blog about his African visit, too.
