With every purchase, HKD5 will be donated to the WWF HK – ‘Adopt An Elephant’. We will also donate on top of this amount too. Together we can make a difference.
The #SaveTheElephants Campaign is an-going project to support and increase awareness in saving the lives of these elephants and its natural habitat. For every purchase, we give back.
Elephants are the largest land mammals on earth and have distinctly massive bodies, large ears, and long trunks. Elephants need extensive land areas to survive and meet their ecological needs, which includes food, water, and space. On average, an elephant can feed up to 18 hours and consume hundreds of pounds of plant matter in a single day. As a result, as they lose habitat, they often come into conflict with people in competition for resources. Once common throughout Africa and Asia, elephants have declined significantly during the 20th century, largely due to the illegal ivory trade. Though some populations are now stable and growing, poaching, human-elephant conflict, and habitat destruction continue to threaten the species.
With only 40,000 to 50,000 left in the wild, the IUCN has classified the species as endangered. Both African and Asian elephants play a vital role in their ecosystems as well as contributing towards tourism and community incomes in many areas. Illegal ivory trade has destroyed many of the lives of this animals. Elephant’s tusk plays a vital part of an elephant’s life. We hope that this would bring a better understanding and awareness to the community.
