Asian Elephant Awareness Month
Who is the largest land animal of them all? That’s right – elephants! Elephants are the largest mammals and have been around for over 55 million years!
Elephants play an important role in our ecosystem because they help disperse seeds, create natural pathways, encourage vegetation growth, dig up water, help maintain biodiversity, and much more!
Let’s celebrate these giants by bringing awareness to their threats and learning how we can all contribute to saving their species!
The following is a list of Asian elephant partner organizations from 2019 pulled from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA)’s Annual Report on Conservation and Science:
