Its incredibly sad to hear about elephants being poached for their tasks. Elephants are very intelligent and are reputed to have excellent memories and it is our duty to educate one another and become future policy makers in order to protect these majestic animals.

Yesterday I spent the day at Smarties Playgroup. I had the amazing opportunity to teach the little ones about elephants and elephant poaching. These little kids continue to shock me of how much they know about the world and everything going on around them. The discussion diverted and they started telling me about rhino poaching and how poaching and hunting is wrong.

The children at Smarties coloured in an elephant and the older kids each gave me one fact about an elephant.
