96 Elephants – Go Grey for World Elephant Day

On World Elephant Day, August 12th we are planning a global celebration of elephants and encouraging people around the world to GO GREY for elephants. On World Elephant Day, with the strength of our partner network, we will deliver 96,000 messages (petitions, letters and drawings) to legislators across the country encouraging them to support bans on ivory sales.

Zoos that will “Go Grey” for World Elephant Day include:

96 Elephants is asking people to:

  • Go Grey with an “elphie”
  • Change your social media to grey
  • Participate in our THUNDERCLAP
  • Wear grey on August 12

We hope you will join. It’s easy. Check out what you can do at
