Prawdopodobnie wiesz, że 🐘🐘🐘 są jednymi z największych żyjących stworzeń na Ziemi, ale czy wiesz, że: ✔️ są zwierzętami społecznymi i zdolnymi do empatii ✔️ wykazują troskę o innych (nawet o przedstawicieli nieswojego gatunku) ✔️ pocieszają się nawzajem głosem i dotykiem ✔️ myślą o relacjach społecznych oraz podejmują decyzje wpływające na funkcjonowanie całego stada❓ Jaki z tego wniosek? Interpretacja dowolna 💁‍♀️ • #udawalawe #udawalawenationalpark #safari #srilankatravel #protectelephants #protectnature #elephantjournal #beautifulcreatures #stopridingelephants #srilankanature #srilankadaily #visitsrilanka #borntotravel #nationalparks #wildnature #wildanimals

Today we were outside the Royal Courts of Justice to support the UK Ivory Ban that was being challenged by the antique trade. They want to detail the 2018 UK Ivory Act. The new law was passed last December. Elephants need protecting, laws that do this need strengthen. Elephants need protecting from the greed and arrogance of humans!
