How much better can it get…

than having a young person reach out because he/she wants to do something positive for another creature!

Encouraging a young generation to care about the Earth’s biodiversity, and instilling a conservation ethic, is perhaps the most valuable conservation tool we can use to ensure that the earth’s future has a place for nature’s wonders. With the blooming of social media across the globe, certainly the size of the reachable audience has expanded beyond all expectation. Maintaining interesting engagement in a society saturated with “feeds” is something else.

Here are some of the things that we are doing to spread awareness of the wonder that is the forest elephant—an ambassador for biodiversity. And you can multiply our effect by sharing and talking about our message!
