Are you wondering where to get Elephant gifts just in time for Valentine's Day? Stay tuned and we will reveal some beautiful elephant gifts.
Many people don’t realize this, but Elephants are very intelligent creatures. These massive beasts have always been icons of the African continent. The Zambezi Valley in Zimbabwe has the second largest population of elephants, now estimated at around 16,000. This valley has its own unique ecosystem and supports a wide range of animals and plant life.

Elephants have a significant place in the cultures of Africa and Asia. They’re capable of very human emotions like love, understanding, grief, kindness and others. In spite of the global programs to educate people about the value of elephants, poachers still kill them each year for their precious ivory tusks. Elephant populations are sharply declining with each passing year. Some surveys show anywhere from a 40% to 75% decrease in elephant populations.
Is it okay to ride an elephant?
Each year, people visit Africa and Asia to see the elephants. In spite of the educational efforts designed to help tourists better understand the importance of elephants, tourists still seek out locals who provide elephant rides and trophy hunting. It’s actually not healthy for the elephant to have humans riding on its back. It’s important to keep working to educate the public about the decline in elephant population. It’s also crucial to support organizations that are involved in elephant rescue, care and medical attention. All humans must do their part to protect and help these magnificent creatures or they will eventually go extinct. The world will be a sadder place without elephants.

Why Should You Support Elephant Organizations
Elephants are beautiful creatures that have human-like emotions such as compassion. These “Gentle Giants” are so intelligent. They can live to be sixty years old or more. But they can become ill from diseases and injuries. The biggest threat to their survival is human beings. In spite of all the information published each year, these magnificent creatures still fall prey to poachers who are looking to sell their skin, ivory and tusks. That’s why it’s so important for everyone to support an elephant sanctuary. If we all do our part, then perhaps our grandchildren will be able to enjoy these creatures.
Why not show your support by purchasing one or more Valentine's Day Gifts from our online store? We appreciate it and so do the elephants.
