World Elephant Day

This day is mainly dedicated to the preservation and protection of the world wide elephants. Elephants are very intelligent, have great memories and a family oriented animal. They are capable of feeling deep emotions, from intense sadness to joy bordering on happiness, as well as empathy and charming self-awareness. Still, countless elephants are ruthlessly killed every year for their ivory by greedy poachers who then leave their carcasses to rot in the sun.
