In Honor of World Elephant Day - Martin D-28 Guitar (left-handed) Autographed by Paul McCartney to #SaveElephants, Benefitting The Nature Conservancy

Arlington, VA – One of the most beloved Singer/Songwriters of all time is helping save one of the world’s most beloved species in honor of World Elephant Day.

The Nature Conservancy will auction a Martin D-28 (left-handed) guitar autographed by Sir Paul McCartney provided by Martin Guitar, founding sponsor of The Nature Conservancy’s #SaveElephants initiative tomorrow at 9 am Eastern. You can learn more about bidding on this one of a kind guitar at http://bit.ly/1yr1npS.

Sir Paul has worked passionately for decades to make the world a better place for animals. In a nod to Woody Guthrie’s famous guitar, Sir Paul wrote “This Guitar Saves Elephants” on this gorgeous Martin D-28 that is left-handed like Sir Paul plays. A fitting slogan since the funds raised will be directed to The Nature Conservancy’s African Elephant Initiative, a global effort to work with partners in Africa, China, and elsewhere to increase security for elephants on the ground and to reduce demand for ivory.
