Why Celebrate World Elephant Day

Elephants roaming freely in the Tsavo Wilderness
Elephants young and old, are among the favorite of all animals that visitors look forward to experience during our safaris. So to appreciate the existence and beauty of these magnificent pachyderms, a global World Elephant Day is celebrated on the 12th of August annually. 

The importance of World Elephant Day, is not just to highlight this mammals daily struggle to exist against poaching, human wildlife conflict, climate change and loss of habitat, but rather, it is an opportunity for people of the world to feel motivated and directly participate in the conservation of these beautiful animals. There are a number of ways to celebrate World Elephant Day; by spreading awareness, supporting conservation organizations, lobbying government for better protection, donating equipment and supplies to rangers and by trying to stop the ivory trade.

How will you be celebrating World Elephant Day?
