World Elephant Day

Apparently it is World Elephant Day today and whilst I am not entirely sure what is behind the campaign I applaud any organisation that is against the appalling ivory trade and in favour of helping elephants.

We are rather fond of elephants in the Rollercoaster household - partly because Mr Rollercoaster and I ended up with an elephant at our wedding in Sri Lanka many years ago. We took the girls back there in 2011 and visited the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, a highlight of our trip. So in honour of these magnificent and amazing creatures I thought I would share a couple of photos with you from a couple of years ago.

The elephants love their daily bathe in the river.

So please remember that no one in the world needs an elephant tusk but an elephant and it is not just the ivory trade that is affecting them but the loss of their habitat in many areas of the world.

  1. A wonderful post! That must have been a fantastic experience for your girls. Elephants are such amazing creatures and it is good to hear that there are people out there who help their plight.
