World Day of elephants in zoos

Today, animal welfare advocates call attention to the challenges of elephants — the most majestic animals of today. First World Day of elephants in zoos (International Day of Action for Elephants in Zoos) was recorded in 2009, the same activists have identified their main tasks, chief among them — the liberation of all the bishops of the world from captivity.

Elephants, the largest land mammals, are designed for open spaces. These highly evolved animals together in a large family with close relationships, communicating with each other even at a distance. On the day they pass by a few kilometers, overcoming deserts, rivers, forests and savannas. In captivity, they are deprived of it, and, ultimately, live a life incomplete — only for the people to have the pleasure of seeing the giant with his own eyes.

In addition, elephants often suffer from severe methods of training, which still used in some regions. Among other uses, for example, steel hooks, which should cause the animal to obey man.

In the Day of elephants in zoos, animal welfare advocates are organizing a variety of educational activities, telling people about elephants, their traditional way of life and how hard it in captivity. In the United States, this action has been held for several years and has managed to bring early results. About 20 U.S. zoos have closed or are about to close the pavilions with the elephants, 11 zoos have moved 14 elephants in nature reserves, created specifically for these animals.

Day elephants in zoos is not one of the official languages. However, its proponents are going to fight for the United Nations to formally brought it to the calendar dates.

By the way, September 20 celebrated another's Day elephants. It is dedicated to all the bishops of the world, not just those found in zoos.
