Only elephants should wear ivory
On Saturday, june 3 we are having a cook out at the Indianapolis zoo. The addmition is 5 dollars for a free meal and a free elephant ride. This money will help us raise awareness in saving elephant.
Poaching is a deadly crime against wildlife. Wildlife officials say that legal hunters kill tens of millions of animals every year. For each of those animals, another is killed illegally, perhaps on closed land or out of season, leaving orphaned young to starve. Few poachers are caught or punished.
Why do we do this
Think of the beauty, majesty, elegance and innocence as they trooped to drink, their infants toddling along beside them.Now think of their death throes. These graceful titans, trying to protect and revive their young before themselves succumbing.They have a range of emotions comparable to our own, deep feelings, self-awareness, body language, communication skills and matriarchal family structures that put many of us to shame. Elephants are people to not our natural resources.
