World Elephant Day
Today is a special day as it highlights the plight of one of our most revered, loved and iconic animals. This day not only celebrates an animal whose conservation and sustainability is a real desire that lies close to all our hearts at ORYX, but also brings to attention their rapid demise and need for our collective protection.
Today, 12 August 2015, is World Elephant Day.
Over the years, poaching, human-elephant conflict, mistreatment and habitat loss are just some of the threats that have seen the population of this majestic species drop at a continuously alarming rate.
In order to help protect and conserve elephants from the constant threats that they are subjected to, we celebrate World Elephant Day, with the focus of encouraging the world to support solutions for their sustainability, care, and protection.
World Elephant day heralds the need for us to work together to create a non-exploitive and protective environment for wild and captives elephants alike.
Celebrate this magnificent animal with us. Join us in preventing their further demise. Join us today, on World Elephant Day.
