Elephants are the largest animal to walk the earth, Africa elephants, which are two species, Forest & Savannah, and Asian elephants are the second largest. Less than 100 years ago there were over 100,000 Asian elephants, now there are less than 4,000. That number includes wild and domestic/work elephants. Poaching, the taking of ivory even from young elephants, and the loss of habitat are two main causes for these low numbers.
I love to draw/paint elephants, there is something about these large wrinkled gentle giants that touches my heart. There are many wildlife artists whose works will be on sale today to help benefit many different organization that help fight against poaching.
Today I will post some of my own elephant works. Most galleries take 50% of a sale, so today, I will give that 50% to the elephants, well to charities that help the elephants, the fight against poaching.
Here are some links to organizations that will give you more information on the fight to help the elephants:
