Elephants, Never Forget
Elephants are the largest land animals on our planet, but size is just the beginning. This mighty species is also one of the world’s most intelligent, social and emotional animals. Yet its future is alarmingly fragile.
Elephants, Never Forget brings the world of elephants – from the African savannah to Asian rain forests – right into your classroom. The lessons and activities also encourage your students to examine and discuss the challenges that threaten the survival of one our most beloved species. There are also creative activities appropriate for younger students - and fun for older ones as well.

In the past century, the number of elephants in the wild has declined by 50 per cent. Their disappearance could devastate ecosystems and have a lasting impact on the biodiversity of our planet. I hope this program will inspire and empower you to help protect elephants worldwide.”
