It's world elephant day
These magnificent, intelligent creatures exhibit a wide range of complex emotions that we once thought were unique to humans. Their numbers are dropping across Africa and Asia due to human encroachment and, in the case of Africa, poaching. We can never assume that these majestic creatures will always share our world; constant vigilance and hard work by conservation organisations is required. They, in turn, need the financial support of the public. There are many doing great work e.g. David Sheldrick wildlife trust, save the elephants or the WWF. Why not have a look at the amazing work they do?

The 'colour' of an elephant is entirely due to the colour of the mud in their habitat.
