We will be giving a portion of the proceeds from these Elephant products to the Save The Elephants initiative.
The mission is to secure a future for elephants and to sustain the beauty and ecological integrity of the places they live; to promote man’s delight in their intelligence and the diversity of their world, and to develop a tolerant relationship between the two species.
Elephants are Africa’s gardeners and landscape engineers, planting seeds and creating habitat wherever they roam.
Only one mammal can’t jump — the elephant.
Elephants have a highly developed brain and the largest of all the land mammals. The brain is 3 or 4 times larger than that of humans although smaller as a proportion of body weight.
Elephants purr like cats do, as a means of communication.
The elephant’s trunk is able to sense the size, shape and temperature of an object. An elephant uses its trunk to lift food and suck up water then pour it into its mouth.
Elephants cry, play, have incredible memories, and laugh.
Elephants can swim – they use their trunk to breathe like a snorkel in deep water.
Elephant feet are covered in a soft padding that help uphold their weight, prevent them from slipping, and dull any sound. Therefore elephants can walk almost silently!
Elephants are highly sensitive and caring animals. if a baby elephant complains, the entire family will rumble and go over to touch and caress it. Elephants express grief, compassion, self-awareness, altruism and play.
Elephants have greeting ceremonies when a friend that has been away for some time returns to the group.
Elephants are social creatures. They sometimes “hug” by wrapping their trunks together in displays of greeting and affection.
