New Delhi: World Elephant Day, observed on August 12, is one way of recognising the importance of elephants. The day also focuses on the protection of giant beings.
World Elephant Day was first observed on August 12, 2012. A Thailand-based organisation, Elephant Reintroduction Foundation teamed up with Canadian filmmaker Patricia Sims to mark the observance of elephants. Since 2012, the day is marked with an aim to reach out to people and educate them on the plight of elephants.
World Elephant Day is a mode through which organisations and individuals can come together and speak about the issues threatening elephants. As per the official website, the day is a “rallying call for people to support organisations that are working to stop the illegal poaching and trade of elephant ivory and other wildlife products, protect wild elephant habitat, and provide sanctuaries and alternative habitats for domestic elephants to live freely.”
