Save the Elephant Day is celebrated on April 16 of every year. Save the Elephants Day was created to raise awareness about the dangers elephants face and the various difficulties they have to overcome to live. By spreading awareness, the general people can understand the significance and consequences of their actions or inactions on the future of elephants. The two main problems to elephants are their habitat loss and the ivory trade, both of these threats are due to humans.

Nature’s great masterpiece, an elephant; the only harmless great thing.” – John Donne

History Of Save the Elephant Day

Save the Elephant Day is established by the Elephant Reintroduction Foundation in Thailand, together with Patricia Sims, a Canadian filmmaker. The launch of this worldwide initiative in the year 2012 saw the release of the “Return to the Forest”, a documentary film described by Star Trek celebrity William Shatner. Elephants are the wildlife idols and the sad thing is that these lovely giants are in great crisis. Save the Elephants Day is the best opportunity to show our care and love for these wildlife icons and spread awareness about the threats to their future in Asia and Africa, ranging from ivory traders and loss of habitat.
