On August 12, 2012, the inaugural World Elephant Day was launched to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants. The elephant is loved, revered and respected by people and cultures around the world, yet we balance on the brink of seeing the last of this magnificent creature.
The above link is too a pledge to do what you can to help all elephants.
I love elephants, just as much as Lions. I see them and I do not understand how anyone could kill them. They are beautiful. They feel, they grieve and oh my goodness, I would say that a baby elephant is just as cute as a puppy or a kitten! And have you ever seen how fast an Elephant herd move when a baby is in distress?
Baby elephants do not come out knowing how to use their trunks either. They have to learn how to use them.
Also watch the elephant ears. That’s what they used to communicate, as well as watching their temperature.
