World Elephant Day

World Elephant Day

World Elephant Day was created in 2011. The motivation was to draw attention to the plight of these majestic creatures to populations and cultures all over the world. Major threats to these animals include the ivory trade and habitation loss, as it deprives elephants of the hundreds of pounds of food they need every day, making it more difficult for them to breed and making it easier for poachers to track them down.
