Hello Friends! Today is very important to me and if you are a long time follower than you know this cause is dear to my heart! Today is World Elephant Day and my heart aches that these amazing creatures are being poached, orphaned and on the verge of possible extinction. I hope todays post will educate you on something you may not have already known about and I hope this post will instill in you a desire to make a difference!
ONE ELEPHANT IS KILLED EVERY 15 MINUTES. AT THIS RATE NONE WILL BE ROAMING WILD IN 2025.
WHY SAVE THE ELEPHANT?
Elephants have roamed the wild for 15 million years and today this iconic species faces their biggest threat to survival due to continued ivory poaching. As long as there is a demand for ivory, elephants will be continued to be killed for their tusks. Today it is estimated up to 36,000 elephants are killed annually, that’s one life lost every 15 minutes. Learn more about this CRISIS HERE!
