🐘Elephants, found in both Africa and Asia, are vital to maintaining the rich biodiversity of the ecosystems that they share with other species. Tens of thousands of elephants are killed each year by poachers for their ivory and It’s up to us to spread the word to protect these animals before its too late. #bekindtoelephants@theellenshow@dswt

Wildlife Wednesday: Throwback experience. Asian Elephants, revered for centuries,
are an endangered species. The population is declining at a rapid rate due to loss of habitat. This sad state of affairs is just a depressing reflection of what is happening throughout most of the world, where logging and deforestation is affecting animals big and small. Illegal capture and trade of Elephants for use in the tourism industry is also a big problem. This industry thrives on foreign visitors wanting to ride elephants or watch them do various tricks. To achieve this baby Elephants are subject to torture through the use of confinement, beatings with clubs and bull-hooks and other deplorable methods to break their spirits and make them obey. There are those trying to do their bit however and across South East Asia there are well run ethically friendly sanctuaries that rescue and rehabilitate abused Elephants. Still more needs to be done to care and protect these magnificent creatures and their natural habitats.
