Elephant Facts

5 Elephant Facts

  1. At the beginning of the twentieth century there were a few million African elephants roaming in the wild. Today that number has fallen to an estimated 450,000.
  2. Elephants develop family bonds that are very tight and live in matriarchal family groups of females that are related to one another called a herd. The oldest and usually largest female in the herd in known as the matriarch.
  3. When a calf is born it is raised and protected by the whole herd. Male elephants leave the herd when they reach the age of between 12 -15 and usually lead solitary lives.
  4. Elephants can live to be 70 years old even in the wild.
  5. When an elephant calf is born it can weigh as much as 230 pounds.

Why Adopt an Elephant?

The elephant is the largest land animal in the world and the species is in crisis. All three types of elephant are listed by the IUCN as threatened. WWF is working hard to conserve this iconic species. The elephant is hunted illegally for its ivory tusks but that is not the only threat, habitat loss is also having a big impact. Elephant populations all over the world are declining precipitously and if that is not good enough reason to adopt an elephant here are five more reasons.

1. Support Elephant Conservation

The elephant is threatened by poaching and habitat destruction and their numbers are falling dramatically. By adopting an elephant you will be helping WWF conserve this amazing species.

2. Help with Habitat Restoration

Your elephant adoption will help fund WWF as it seeks to restore habitat and degraded biological corridors. Hopefully, with the restoration of habitats, elephant numbers will recover.

3. Help Develop Eco-tourism

The money you spend on your elephant adoption will be used to support the development of sustainable eco-tourism which will provide income to local people and provides a direct link between economic development and elephant conservation.

4. Help Fight Back Against Poaching

You can gift an elephant adoption to someone who cares about animals and in return they will receive a cuddly toy, gift pack and tons of other cool stuff.
