Friday Facts: Elephants
Today is #WorldElephantDay! A day to celebrate, honour and protect the Earth's largest land animal. Through education, donations, conservation efforts, and policy-making, individuals and organizations worldwide are providing a powerful global voice to make the world a safe place for elephants. World Elephant Day was co-founded on August 12, 2012, by Canadian Patricia Sims and the Elephant Reintroduction Foundation of Thailand, an initiative of HM Queen Sirikit of Thailand.
