Don’t Forget World Elephant Day on 12 August 2018 : ‘Elevents’ are Taking Place Around the World & Two Gatherings Give Prominence to Lucy the Elephant in Canada Who Desperately Needs Our Help

For this seventh annual World Elephant Day there is still time to join in on the ‘Elevents’ taking place in cities and towns and villages around the world to help save our African & Asian Elephants. And two special events are being hosted for Lucy the zoo elephant who has not been forgotten by elephant activists but who continues to suffer through the unforgiving winters of Canada (for elephants, anyway) nonetheless. Thank you, ‘Lucy the elephant’ elephant activists and all elephant advocates & elephant activists who serve as the voices for our elephants on this World Elephant Day.
