Elephant: Forget Me Not
ELEPHANT: FORGET ME NOT illustrates the majesty and the beauty of the elephant by looking at the unique behavioral characteristics elephants possess, their presence throughout history, and the issues that the species is currently facing today.
Elephants have been used symbolically throughout history and have been viewed as strong, powerful, sometimes even violent or scary creatures capable of doing much harm. But when you ask anyone who has worked with or observed them intimately you would be hard pressed to find anyone who has not been immediately enamored by the grace and dignity that they exude.
It is our hope that the work of conservationists, artists, authors, filmmakers, and scientists with a soft spot for these sentient beings will capture your hearts and minds, leaving you with a better understanding of why elephants need to be saved from an almost certain fate before it is too late.
