#tbt when I was traveling #Cambodia and connected with one of the most majestic mammals on the earth 🌏 🐘 did you know that we might be the last generation on the planet to see them in the word? The killing of elephants for ivory is killing them faster than they can reproduce. The import of ivory had just been LEGALIZED in the USA after it was banned a few years ago. #knotonmyplanet 🐘🐘🐘🐘❤️❤️❤️❤️✨✨✨I had waited the whole trip to meet an #elephant and it was a bucket list experience for me, what gentle, ancient creatures, they are ancestors of this earth, let’s show them and give them the respect they deserve. ✨🐘🌿🙏🏼❤️ #elephantlove#animallove#spreadthemessage
Never forget where we came from. Nature is all of our FIRST and earth is our ONLY home. That's why we are bringing the wild to the runway! In Spring of 2018 we are switching it up again. Join Fashion for Conservation next spring for a jungle retreat at @hojanueva 🌱 message us for details.

If science continues to reveal more about how intelligent elephants are, will we treat them with more respect, and do more to prevent them from being hurt, or becoming extinct?

Mes trésors, si vous avez envie de faire quelque chose de bien, vous pouvez allez signer la pétition en ligne que vous trouverez directement en tapant sur google #justicepourmaya .
Maya, c'est une femelle éléphant d'Asie qui souffre le martyre, exploitée par un cirque et retenue dans des conditions atroces. Elle est tout près de la mort. Tous les experts internationaux qui se sont penchés sur son cas soulignent "un état de détresse physique et psychologique rarement vu". Maya représente les animaux qui souffrent dans les cirques. Elle représente les éléphants, espèce tant menacée, exploitée, traquée. La sauver serait un symbole énorme.
Autant que vous le pouvez, relayez cette pétition, partagez la avec vos proches, sur les réseaux sociaux, parlez en autour de vous.
C'est tellement important.
Je vous embrasse très très fort ❤🐘

Happy Sunday! Throwback to our Runway to Peru show last spring with sparkly rainforest inspired designs by @manzanaresny and ten other incredible designers supporting @hojanueva...stay tuned for next years rainforest gala!! 🌱🦋🌹🌎🥂
7 day old baby elephant being fed by her mother in Udawalawe National Park - home for around 700 Sri Lankan elephants with Elephant Transit Home - a project that is geared towards the conservation of this species which is now considered endangered. The Udawalawe Elephant Transit Home is a halfway house of sorts where abandoned, injured or orphaned elephants are treated and then released back into the Park.

Repost from #knotonmyplanet
Many of you have reached out to us in the past few days to offer to help, thank you. This past week's event is a stark reminder that there is still so much more we need to do to protect elephants. Big game hunting although morally repugnant and unacceptable is insignificant compared to the amount of elephants killed every day by poachers for their ivory, most conservationists will agree on this point. Our concern is that when such an outcry happens, it takes away from the bigger conversation, which is that close to 30K elephants are killed every year in Africa for their ivory. Let's make sure that this adorable orphan does not lose its mother to begin with by keeping the rangers and people who protect her from getting killed, by investigating and prosecuting the criminal syndicates who trade and profit from the ivory trade and by achieving demand reduction in ivory consuming nations. The @elephantcrisisfund does all that. At Knotonmyplanet we are dedicated to raising funds for the ECF by partnering with luxury and fashion brands. 100% of the donations go to over 163 projects in 31 countries via 53 organizations and we have raised close to $3 million dollars to date. #knotonmyplanet#rithardbranson#taylorswift#ladygaga#therock#leonardodicaprio#bradpitt#elonmusk#billgates#angelinajolie#kardashians#kimkardashain#kyliejenner#justinbieber#beyonce#oprahwinfrey#ellendegeneres#jackiechan#vindiesel#johnnydepp#gunsnroses#anonymous
ITS TIME TO STOP AFRICAN AIRWAYS EXPORTING ELEPHANT TROPHIES FROM SOUTHERN AFRICA INTO THE U.S. **Petition below** The issue of elephant conservation has been a hot topic lately since the Trump Administration announced they may be lifting the ban on the import of animal remains from so-called “trophy hunts.” After widespread public outcry against this choice, the President announced that the decision would be put on hold and that he now views trophy hunting as a “horror show” that does not contribute to conservation in any way. Perhaps the greatest result of this heated controversy is that the importance of elephant conservation has been brought into a major public spotlight and has inspired countless people to stand up for elephants and other endangered species.
Allowing the import of remains (like skins, body parts, and tusks) from imperiled animals provides the corrupt wildlife trade all the more leeway to get away with their vile attacks on our planet’s biodiversity. Banning the import of animal remains creates an additional obstacle for ivory traders and other corrupt individuals, and as a petition on Care2 states, many airlines have joined the global embargo on the transport of ivory and other animal remains. However, South African Airways has since lifted that important decision.
The petition explains that every fifteen minutes an African elephant is killed, whether it be from poaching or trophy hunts. Elephant populations have dropped by an alarming 62 percent in just the past ten years, and at this rate, conservationists predict African elephants could become extinct by the end of the next decade. Something must be done NOW to protect our planet’s elephants and other endangered species.
Please take a moment to sign the petition addressed to South African Airways, demanding that they stop transporting ivory and other animal remains NOW.
And please remember to share this with your network to further increase support for our world’s irreplaceable wildlife!

I AM NOT YOUR TROPHY. Giving thanks to all who have supported elephant conservation this year, please continue to support by sharing news, following conservation movements, donating directly, signing petition against Trump lifting the ban on trophy hunting, and attending conservation events ❤️🐘Beauty captured by @markjdrury
At Carphin we are avid supporters of responsible tourism and anti-poaching. As such we wanted to share this stunning necklace from @mulberrymongoose , worn by model Doutzen Kroes. The necklace is made from actual recovered snare wire, which is a huge problem in Zambia, resulting in the deaths or maiming of hundreds of wild animals. Please help to raise awareness and show your support.
