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.

Ban the ivory trade in Canada:

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:

"Now is the time to take a stand, not only to benefit our elephants, our biodiversity, and our earth’s climate, but also human health, national security, and socioeconomic development. Supporting the Ivory-Free Canada Coalition is a crucial step for us all."

Make sure you read our latest article, written by Zara Diab, about how you can make a difference and ban the Ivory-Trade in Canada (and around the world!)

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.
