The International World Elephant Day is touted as an international annual event which we celebrate globally on the 12th August, and the day and the World Elephant Day is also dedicated to the preservation and protection of the all elephants globally.
The World Elephant Day was Conceived by the Canadian filmmakers Patricia Sims and Michael Clark of Canazwest Pictures, in 2011 and Sivaporn Dardarananda, Secretary-General of the Elephant Reintroduction Foundation in Thailand, this was officially founded, 12, 2012, supported and launched by Patricia Sims and the Elephant Reintroduction Foundation on August.
Since then, Patricia Sims continues to lead and direct World Elephant Day that is also now supported by over 65 wildlife organizations and several other people in the whole nation across the whole globe.
The main objective of International Elephant Day is to create awareness of the urgent dilemma of African and Asian elephants, and in order to share knowledge and positive solutions for the better care and management of captive and wild elephants.
The African elephants are also touted as the “Vulnerable” and Asian elephants as “Endangered” on the IUCN Red List of threatened species.
One conservationist has said that both African and Asian elephants face extinction within twelve years and the recent and current population estimates said that about 400,000 for African elephants and 40,000 for Asian elephants, however, this has been said that reportedly these numbers are much too high.
On 12th August 2012, The first International Elephant Day was held globally, which raised this issue that this is very important for us to protect them and Elephant Day is all about that.
The film Return to the Forest, narrated by William Shatner, is about the reintroduction of captive Asian elephants to the wild and which was hit theaters on the inaugural World Elephant Day.
The feature film When Elephants Were Young, also narrated by William Shatner, shows the life of a young man and young elephant in Thailand and on the memory of the Elephant Day, we celebrate the Elephant Day.
