Thank You 2020!

Each annual World Elephant Day campaign brings together a dedicated group of talented and hard-working individuals who make up the official World Elephant Day team.  It is our tradition to acknowledge the efforts of these beautiful people who bring World Elephant Day to the world.

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, campaign partners and sponsors, and volunteers 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.
