Admittedly, I don’t watch Sex and the City (though I do make a point of telling people they’re “such a Samantha”), but SATC star Kristin Davis just earned some major brownie points. The actress is set to receive the Wyler Award, an honor given out by the Humane Society of the United States during their annual Genesis Awards.

Davis will be receiving the award for her work in opposing the poaching of African elephants. Davis was touched when she found an orphaned elephant while on a Safari in Africa, and her dedication to the cause started then and there as she took the elephant to a sanctuary. Davis calls the issue “a profound labor of love” for her, and continues the fight by bringing awareness to the import of ivory into the United States. Yes, believe it or not, it still happens despite the 20 year ban on ivory imports.

“Elephants are truly amazing animals and they need our protection, and what people in this country may not realize is that they can help by not buying ivory items,” says Davis.

Animal rights is familiar territory to Davis, who has put her support behind many other organizations in the past, including the WSPA. She also recently supported a letter to the United Nations asking for a stronger stance against climate change.

The Genesis Awards, which will honor not only Davis but also other Hollywood figures who are active in animal welfare, will be held on March 19th in Los Angeles. So, an early congratulations to you, Kristin! I forgive you for the pain your TV show has caused me.
