@Regranned from @marlinamoreno - In honor or #WorldElephantDay I wanted to share a clip from a short film I did about the elephant tourism industry, in hopes of shedding more light on what goes on behind-the-scenes.
For anyone interested, or that knows of someone interested, in forms of tourism that use wild animals for tourist entertainment please watch, share, and take some time to research how it may impact the species you love.
There are more ethical and responsible ways to experience wildlife when traveling than things such as elephant riding, posing for photos with street performing primates, and petting and bottle feeding sedated big cats like lions and tigers 💜🐘 @project.conservation

Just relaxing after Cyber Monday! Now he can’t wait for Christmas! 🐘🎄🎅🏻😊
Slowly making the switch to cleaner living by replacing toxic products in our home with Young Living Essential Oil infused products and it feels so good! My YL 📦 was hiding in our garage, sneaky delivery guy...I didn’t notice it until late this morning 😍

Millions of Elephants once roamed Africa. As of today, 90% of them are gone forever. It's estimated nearly 100 Elephants are killed each day – that's roughly one every 15 minutes. Now we can only find small pockets of herds roaming in the wild.
On World Elephant Day we encourage everyone across the world to set aside time and research the current issues surrounding the poaching, habitat loss, and exploitation of Elephants. See what you can do to help preserve and protect this magnificent animal from extinction.
