"Sex and the City" actress Kristin Davis calls illegal ivory the "new blood diamond"; find out why:
isn’t just saying no to ivory, she’s taken to calling it the “new blood diamond.” The actress, best known for playing Charlotte Goldenblatt (née York) on HBO’s Sex and the City , became the very public face of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust on Friday when she hosted a black-tie dinner in London to fete the charity’s new anti-ivory campaign . The story of how she came to be involved in wildlife conservation is worthy of its own television special. Davis was holidaying in Kenya in 2010 when a Masaai elder waved down her truck to solicit help in locating a lost baby elephant.
