Elephants are among the most intelligent and emotional animals on the planet🐘
We have to protect this majestic creature and its environment if we don't want to see them disappear by 2027.
Up to 30'000 elephants are killed every year for their ivory tusks. Many others in the world are abused for tourist entertainment and live in severely cruel conditions.
1. Don't support cruel animal tourism by visiting animal attraction centers. Where animals are tortured and sedated just so you can ride them or pet them.
2. Don't buy any ivory made product.
3. Support animal welfare and animal conservation organizations like @biglifeafrica which we visited during our Kenyan trip.
These animals are supposed to live in the wild and the most mesmerizing way to see them is anyway in their natural environment.🍃 #elephant#conservation#savetheelephants#kenya#tsavo#chyuluhills#amboseli#safari#wildlife#travel

Since 11 years old I dreamt of Amboseli National Park. I had designed a brochure advertising the park for a school project... On Friday @clau_mile_05 & I got to see a dream become real... One of many in 2017.
Thank you to @orange_adventures for truly creating #magicallifeexperiences#magicalkenya#orangeadventures
Having aeroplanes in the sky is critical when you are working to protect an area as large as what Big Life is trying to do. The associated costs are large, and Big Life is very fortunate to have all of our aeroplane fuel funded by the Elephant Crisis Fund. This allows us to have a greater presence in remote areas of our operation, as well as more effective and rapid response to poaching incidents and injured elephants.
The ECF—a joint initiative between @savetheelephants, @wildnetorg, and the @leonardodicapriofdn—is now partnering with @TiffanyAndCo, and 100% of the profits from their #TiffanySaveTheWild collection will be donated to the @elephantcrisisfund. We hear too much these days of corporate greed and malpractice, Big Life is pleased to hear of Tiffany’s commitment to ethical sourcing of materials for their jewelry, and for their support for elephant conservation. Thank you.
❤Wild and Free❤ Please, please, please, do NOT ride elephants, pay to see to watch them perform, or support unethical animal tourism. The process to allow you to ride on an elephant or do tricks is called Phajaan or, "the crush", in which you break the elephants spirit. Supporting tour groups that do this isn't cool and you're not cool. Enjoy the eles by feeding them bananas, bathing them, or taking them on a jungle trek.
Can you guess who won the splashing contest?! Not me that's for sure! 😂 😂
It's cool to look back on these memories and see how the idea of wanting to help animal conservation started with learning about elephant conservation in Thailand! 🌎🌿
Elephants are such a huge part of the tourism culture in Thailand but what a lot of tourists don't realize is that when you ride an elephant you are supporting the unethical torture that can go into training an elephant. 💕🐘💕If you are ever faced with the opportunity to meet these gentle giants remember to visit an elephant sanctuary instead and insist that you won't ride an elephant! 🙏
We have to help stop this senseless act 🤝
The @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn is a long-time supporter and partner with @SavetheElephants and @wildnetorg in the @ElephantCrisisFund. Together they have funded more than 160 projects across Africa and Asia to stop the killing of elephants, stop the trafficking, and stop the demand for their ivory. Watch the video and visit the new website to learn more about how you can help protect elephants.

How can you not feel good in these lightweight, elephant print yoga pants from @theelephantpants knowing that 10% of proceeds from every pair sold goes to preserving the lives of ellies around the world? #forelephantseverywhere
Slash has been a supportive voice for IFAW for several years bringing awareness to the plight of the African elephant. Looks like he taped this PSA while he was in Nashville signing all those guitars for Gibson custom shop 🙂 Consider a donation to this worthy cause if you are able. 🐘❤️
