Without elephants, what kind of world would it be? Elephant numbers have dropped by 62% over the last decade, and they could be mostly extinct by the end of the next decade. An estimated 100 African elephants are killed each day by poachers seeking ivory, meat and body parts, leaving only 400,000 remaining. Sickening; really.
Are you okay with your grandchildren only seeing elephants in a picture book? Because that's where we are headed. How can we allow such a tragedy to continue? How do we not see how important elephants are to their ecosystem. How do we not see the emotional intelligence these majestic beauties possess? How anyone can continue to contribute to their death and rationalize it is beyond me. When I think about how close we are to their extinction, my heart breaks. I don’t want to live in a world without elephants. So, in honor of the deep love I have for them, and In honor of World Elephant Day, I am donating 10% of every sale on The Bohemia Way to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust from today until August 19th. So shop for a good cause and help save the elephants! Their fate is in our hands. 🐘 "We admire elephants in part because they demonstrate what we consider the finest human traits: empathy, self-awareness, and social intelligence. But the way we treat them puts on display the very worst of human behavior." -Graydon Carter
