Elephants are just like us. They have strong family bonds. The females stay together for life and they mourn the loss of loved ones when they die.
They are migratory mammals that have been on earth for 55 million years.
Along comes man, and what we have done to this iconic incredible animal is completely unacceptable. They are now less than ten years away from extinction.
One elephant is killed every 15 minutes for their tusks.
We have corrupt leaders, weak border controls, and wildlife criminals still exporting tusks for profit.
We kill mothers and take her baby and almost kill her baby to teach them that their lives are no longer free. We turn them into someone else's bucketlist while someone else gets rich. Look into the eyes of any elephant used for the entertainment industry and you will know immediately, that they're sad. Why? Because they don't belong to us. They want freedom with their families.
Don't listen to anything anyone tells you about elephants in captivity. If they're controlled and you see a BULLHOOK, hold onto your money and donate to a real elephant sanctuary. 🐘
