A LITTLE ABOUT ELEPHANTS
Elephants are revered as representations of companionship, loyalty, and vitality. In Africa, where the bush elephant, the largest living land animal lives, they are considered as symbols of stamina, power, and longevity. These animals really stand out in the animal kingdom! Probably one of the most special things about them is that they are some of the most social creatures in existence.
Elephants are just like us. They grieve for their dead loved ones, comfort their herd mates, and protect their families. When in distress, they help one another. Believe it or not, they have demonstrated several behaviors that are believed to be exclusive to humans. However, being well-loved doesn’t mean that they are well-protected from evil doings.
While some elephant populations are stable, Asian elephants and African elephants are classified as endangered. Poaching, ivory trade, and frequent clashes with humans in their natural habitat are pushing them towards extinction. Elephants play an important role in our environment in so many ways. That is more than enough reason for us to protect them.
They eat and make gaps in the vegetation, providing new pathways for smaller creatures. They produce watering holes during the dry season (other animals can use this as well!). As herbivores, they eat seeds and plant them through their dung. The result? New grasses, bushes, and plants!
No need to go personally to forests, savannas, and grasslands. We can help elephants by spreading the word about their current situation. If you want, you can also virtually adopt one. Many wildlife organizations do this to support their conservation work.
If you have a small child or sibling, you can work on Elephant activity sheets together. Let the kids know how important conservation is, and the little things they can do to help elephants and other endangered animals. Coloring can open our eyes to things that matter!
