At the end of each annual World Elephant Day campaign we like to acknowledge all the people behind the hard work and dedication that brings World Elephant Day to the world.
An extraordinary group of talented individuals makes up the official World Elephant Day team. Together they work collectively to further unite people everywhere in a common love for the elephants, and shared concern for their plight. The team works long hours to present the World Elephant Day campaign to the world about the issues impacting elephants through its official website, communications, educational content and social media outreach, working with elephant conservation organizations to help spread awareness to the global public. This annual day of celebration of our elephant friends comes to life largely as a result of their efforts. Each and every year, they help to make World Elephant Day the growing success that it has been since its inception in 2012.
