That moment you realize it’s Monday again 🐘😳

Did you know that elephants are some of the lightest sleepers in the animal kingdom? Patterns differ between wild and captive elephants but both only need around 2-4 hours of sleep a night! 💤🐘

Elephants can go up to 4 days without water however they can also use their trunks and tusks to dig into the ground to find wells if necessary. Although elephants tend to stay near water sources but they can smell water from around 5km kilometres away.

Did you know?

An elephant's skin is 2.5cm thick in most places. The folds and wrinkles in their skin can retain up to 10 times more water than flat skin does, which helps cool them down in hot climates!

Hello World Elephant Day family! We have been monitoring the war in #Ukraine and wanted to provide an update on everything we know for certain right now.

Firstly, the Kyiv Zoo’s Facebook page has been posting regular updates on how their animals, including Horace the elephant, are doing.  As far as we’ve heard they are all stressed but otherwise alright.
Please go follow the zoo’s Facebook page to keep up-to-date with developments happening in Kyiv.

The Nikolaev Zoo which is in the southern region of Ukraine has also been providing updates via their Facebook page. They’ve been able to receive supplies from a contingent of other zoos from across Europe. According to a recent article in a French newspaper they have recently been bombed although no fatalities of either animals or people occurred; which we are very thankful for. 

The Kharkiv Zoo, which is only 40km from the Russian border has also been subjected to heavy military fire. They are requesting financial support and, of course, for this illegal and horrible conflict to stop. 

We have been trying to find reliable information concerning the Odessa Zoo but their website appears to be offline. If any of our followers has updates on their wellbeing please link it below!

In summary, there are five captive elephants scattered around Ukraine in these and other zoos. In times of human conflict animals are often left behind, neglected or killed so we commend every single individual working at all the zoos and sanctuaries in Ukraine for taking care of these noble creatures. 

In our bio is a LinkTree to donation sources we have been able to confirm are legitimate and direct. Please consider donating if you are able to.

An initiative some of the zoo’s are participating in is through the purchase of “digital tickets.” In other words members of the international community are purchasing admission tickets for the zoo’s as a direct way to financially contribute while being overseas. These links can also be found in our bio as well!

It’s hard enough seeing wild animals in captivity but during times of conflict it’s even worse. Zoo keepers in the Ukraine must be commended for their care and dedication in keeping their elephants and all other animals safe during this tragic crisis.

10 years ago we started #WorldElephantDay as a celebration of these wonderful, amazing creatures. We wanted this day to act as a rallying cry for global change and awareness. However, human’s relationship with elephants hasn’t been without complications. It’s important to remember how these creatures have been exploited by us.
On this #WorldElephantDay please take this as a reminder to not engage in harmful behaviours. 
Don’t ride elephants, don’t support exploitation for our entertainment.

Protect, Conserve, Inspire.
The @MaraElephantProject is part of our Friends of World Elephant Day program! They work to protect elephants in the greater Mara ecosystem as a keystone species for conservation.

To celebrate this #WorldElephantDay, Mara Elephant Project wanted to highlight some of the elephants they're studying to increase protection for them and their habitat in the Greater Mara Ecosystem (GME). 
The MEP Research Department is hard at work collecting data from Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and MEP collared elephants and individual elephants through MEP’s long-term monitoring (LTM) team and we are learning so much about the elephants that call the GME home. 

Be sure to check out their latest story here:

Happy #WorldElephantDay!
This year, like every year, we celebrate not only these majestic creatures but also the dedicated people and organizations that are committed to protecting them. @DeBeersGroup and their #MovingGiants project is one of these initiatives and we are proud of their support for our 10th Anniversary.

As part of their commitment to conservation they maintain a live 24-hour webcam to monitor the elephants and other wildlife within their nature reserves.  Have a peek and you may have the chance to see the thriving elephant population that they protect.  Link in Bio

For our 10th Anniversary of #WorldElephantDay we are proud to partner again with @debeersgroup in support of their #MovingGiants initiative.

Moving Giants is a project helmed by De Beers Group in partnership with Peace Parks Foundation. Beginning in 2018 they began the long process of translocating 200 elephants 1,400km from South Africa to Mozambique. Since then they have translocated 101 elephants to their new home with plans for 100 more to be moved in the years ahead. This is one of the longest translocations of elephants ever attempted to help secure the future of one country's nature reserve and re-wild another's national park. 

Through their Diamond Route, De Beers manages eight reserves for conservation, including one with a 24-hour live webcam which offers a unique glimpse of a waterhole.
