We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—part of what keeps elephant alive and moving is the dedication and love invested by our apprentices.
We truly couldn’t do what we do without them.
For four to six months, they spend every waking (and sleeping) hour editing, sharing articles and generally spreading elephant love near and far—and for them, we are truly grateful.
To each of you (Steph Richard, Dana Gornall, Renee Picard, Stephanie Sefton, Julie Garcia, Tawny Sanabria, Dejah Beaucamp, Kristina Peterson, Cat Beekmans, Gabriela Magna, Judith Andersson, Leace Hughes, Linda Jockers, Moira Madden, Bruce Casteel, Ben Neal, Meagan Edmondson, Andie Britton-Foster, Katharine Spano and Jade Belzberg), we thank you from the tips of our trunks to the tops of our tails.
