World Elephant Day


Wednesday, August 12 is World Elephant Day 
'Bringing the world together to help elephants'

Join us as we celebrate World Elephant Day, virtually!
Family-friendly activities and learning opportunities are available all day long. 

Celebrate and raise awareness for elephants from your home:


At The Sanctuary, we believe public knowledge is key to creating a world where elephants no longer live under the constant threat of poaching, habitat loss, conflict, or capture.

As part of our World Elephant Day celebration, The Sanctuary's Education Team is spending the day conducting Distance Learning programs for life-long learners of all ages all around the globe! 

If you missed The Sanctuary's Skype-in-the-Classroom LIVE event (August 12 at 12 p.m. CDT) but would like to schedule a Distance Learning program in the future for your family, classroom, or community group, visit www.elephants.com/distance-learning.
