National Elephant Day: Save The Elephants!

Today is #NationalElephantDay and I’d like to share these gripping photos of elephants in the wild and the sad effects of poaching and the ivory industry. Below are a few of my favorite photos from the article. Visit Mashable to view each photo and donate or make a gift to WWF if you’d like to help out the cause. Check out WWF for more information about African Elephants and Forest Elephants.
