In a perfect world all of our elephants would live as elephants in the wild and have the peace of knowing they were not hunted for what is basically their ‘upper incisors,’ albeit ivory.(1)
If there were no demand for ivory, there would be no reason for poaching elephants. All reasonable humans realize that.
The ‘big tusker’ elephant in this short video exemplifies the majesty of the species Loxodonta africana whilst exuding the vibe of “Keep Calm and Carry On” as only an elephant can.
May peace soon come for our elephants and our world.
Elephant conservation begins with US.
