Appreciating – and helping – the elephants

Posted by

Favorite animal?  In a recent unscientific poll, most people say elephant.  And no wonder! They are currently the largest land animal and so interesting!

So much so we put together a video with more information on the animal that ‘never forgets.’  (It’s true!  Find out why in this video.)

Celebrating the elephant

We recently shared the story about how the Singita Grumeti Fund is working to train dogs in their anti-poaching and conservation efforts.  So who are these dogs protecting?

The Tanzania area’s elephant population, for one.

The escalation of poaching, habitat loss, and human-elephant conflict are just some of the threats to both African (less than 400,000 worldwide) and Asian (less than 40,000 worldwide) elephants.

Working towards better protection for wild elephants, improving enforcement policies to prevent the illegal poaching and trade of ivory, conserving elephant habitats, are the goals that numerous elephant conservation organizations are focusing on around the world, including the Singita Grumeti Fund.

And it’s working. The project has seen a fourfold increase in their elephant population. That’s why on World Elephant Day – and everyday, you should consider supporting the Singita Grumeti Fund.
