August 12th is the inaugural World Elephant Day. It is launched to bring attention the threats to both African and Asian elephants: ‘escalation of poaching, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and mistreatment in captivity’.
The African and Asian elephants need extensive land to survive.
World Elephant Day is about experiencing elephants in non-exploitive and sustainable environments, where there is no illegal poaching and trade of ivory, better treatment and conserving elephant habitats so that the elephants can thrive under care and protection.
