Animal loving-actress Kristin Davis was honored for raising awareness of orphaned elephants at Saturday night's, March 19, Genesis Awards. The "Sex and the City" star works closely with wildlife conservationists in Kenya to help rescue elephants who are hunted by poachers for their tusks.
Now her philanthropy efforts have been hailed by organizers of the annual Genesis Awards, which are handed out to those who work to raise public awareness and understanding of animal issues. Davis received the Wyler Award " in recognition of the media attention she has brought to the plight of orphaned African elephants" at the ceremony hosted by the Humane Society of the United States in Century City, California.
Animated movie "How to Train Your Dragon" was praised for highlighting animal rights issues and giving an "inspiring message about tolerance and respect for all living creatures", while vampire TV drama "True Blood" won a prize for a plot about dog fighting.
