Children and Elephants enjoying World Elephant Day.

from Alan Taylor
World Elephant Day. Supported by numerous conservation agencies, it’s a day to “spread awareness, share knowledge, and provide solutions for better care and management of both captive and wild elephants,” according to the organizer’s website.
Elephants face numerous challenges, including poaching, habitat loss, exploitation, abuse, and proximity to human conflict and poverty.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature lists African elephants as “vulnerable” and Asian elephants as “endangered.”
