Washington — Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Lansing, met with "Sex and the City" actress Kristin Davis on Wednesday to discuss the fate of endangered African elephants.

Last year, Stabenow went to Tanzania as part of an Agriculture Committee trip to discuss the plight of endangered elephants. Davis is in Washington to screen a new documentary "Gardeners of Eden" for the State Department and for members of Congress.

Stabenow said poaching is a "huge economic issue" because if the animals disappear then tourists won't come to the country.

Davis played Charlotte York on "Sex and the City." She told Stabenow that the experience of seeing the elephants was a once in a life time experience. "It's amazing and to be able to people like yourself and I care so much about the elephants," Davis said.
