Did you know that elephants are one of the only non-human animals to mourn their dead, performing burial rituals and returning to visit their loved ones graves? Elephants are one of the most intelligent creatures on the planet, who experience joy, empathy, fear, grief, love. They cry and laugh. Their families are so important to them. Their emotional capacity is enormous and they’re one of the few non-human animals to suffer from PTSD.
President Donald Trump has now changed his mind and said he will uphold a ban on importing trophies of elephants hunted and killed in Zimbabwe, pending further review, reversing his own administration's decision from just a day earlier after a public outcry.
Let’s make sure it stays that way. Stand up, make yourself heard, make a difference
