Right around the corner from World Lion Day is World Elephant Day, another important large animal found in Africa. This incredible species is not only found in Africa and Asia, but they are often the central character in many films. This day is a great opportunity to run a movie marathon for movies that showcase an elephant character or that highlight the tragic poaching and abuse of elephants that continues today. Here are some you could choose from: Water for Elephants (it was originally a book, if you wanted to do this book for your resident book club), Dumbo (original Disney version and new live action version), The Jungle Book (live action), The Elephant Queen, The Ivory Game, and Tyke Elephant Outlaw. Use the documentary options as an opportunity to discuss animal treatment in entertainment, endangered species, and what we can do to help.
