World Elephant Day

Morning Prayers

Do-Something-Everyday, August 11, 2016

Elephant, one of a few living megafauna, is endangered due to habitat loss and poaching. It is shocking to contemplate that if we do nothing about it, twenty-five years from now we may be living in a world without elephants. August 12 has been dedicated as World Elephant Day to create awareness of the urgent plight of African and Asian elephants, and to share knowledge and positive solutions for the better care and management of captive and wild elephants. Elephants hold a special place in Indian culture and mythology and they are a recurring motif in my artistic work.
