World Elephant Day - August 12, 2018

In 2014, Botswana banned hunting and thousands of elephants fled there to sanctuary. In 2018, the new government is threatening to overturn the ban and legalize hunting. If the oldest elephants are killed, their knowledge dies with them.

Losing the African and/or Asian Elephant would be more of a loss than anyone can comprehend. We must do all we can to protect these wonderful noble spirits. Shared and noted. Thank you so much Barb.
