April 16th is Worldwide Save The Elephant Day.
PETA has shared this video to spread awareness about the plight of elephants, with the one in this video being on the road with a traveling circus.
According to the World Elephant Day website elephant numbers have decreased by 63% over the last decade and could be almost extinct by the end of the next decade.
It is estimated that 100 elephants are killed every day by poachers.
With approximately only 400,000 elephants remaining, they desperately need our help, and for us to continue to raise awareness to ensure they do not suffer anymore horrific cruelty and also to ensure they do not become instinct.
