They are meant to be in the wild with their grandmothers, mothers, aunts, and cousins, free to live as nature intends, doing what they choose to do, each and every day.
If you care about the welfare of elephants as much as I do, share this video with as many people as you can. It's a simple yet powerful way to raise awareness of the plight of performing elephants. Every single view has the power to open someone's eyes to the heartlessness of captive performance - and to make someone think twice before supporting this exploitative practice.
Be sure to also visit www.whatelephantslike.org, which just launched today in honor of World Elephant Day. You'll discover a whimsical 3-D site as well as our children's book, "What Elephants Like" (in animated, print, and coloring-book style)! This book is a fantastic tool to teach compassion to the young generation. I have shared it with my daughter; I hope you'll share it with someone you care about, too.
For the protection - and celebration - of elephants, today and every day ...
