Elephants: Their Ability to Memorize

“To have a memory like an elephant” is a saying you can find in many languages. And it is not something new, either. So even though we know that the ability to remember is so great in elephants they are being abused on a daily basis. One of the main goals of two Facebook groups is the rescue of Nosey, the elephant who has been and still is being abused by the owner. There is an elephant sanctuary ready and prepared to take this elephant in – any time, any moment. Please share the sad story that will hopefully lead to a happy ending in 2016:

Animals and Holidays

This time of year most people on earth celebrate some kind of holiday. Sadly, this also means more animals than during any other time of year are being killed. And this after a short, painful and excruciatingly torturous life.

But thanks to more and more people who think compassionately, who no longer think of an animal as something but as someone, there is hope that animal awareness will spread around the world.

Thank you for helping, thank you for listening, thank you for spreading the word on animal awareness!

Good News: NIH Will Stop Torture of Monkeys

Several petitions concerning the abhorrent abuse of baby monkeys were available all through this year. PeTA had brought to light the continued cruelty towards baby monkeys who were taken away from their mothers for experimentation. These studies had been going on for decades with no new information being found during the last decade.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have declared an end to these atrocious experiments, this news being confirmed by congressman Brendan Boyle.

PeTA is now discussing with the NIH when and where the monkeys will be released and retired.

You can read more and sign the petition on retiring the monkeys here:

Elephants and Endless Agonies

Many studies have been made on elephants, elephants in the wild as well as elephants in captivity. All have proven how intelligent, social, loving, caring, and emotional elephants mostly are. And how depressed they can get when deprived of their basic needs for well being.

Elephants will help their kin when in need, elephants will come to the rescue when they see another one hurting. They will stay with their dead, mourning vigilantly.

Knowing all of these facts, it is even more appalling what some of these beings have to live through. In Japan, there is Hanako. Hanako has been living in a concrete prison for over 61 years. In the United States, Nosey has been forced to “perform” even though she visibly shows signs of pain and has not been treated for the severe arthritis in her joints. Lucky, also in the United States, has been in captivity since 1962 and has been forced to stand on concrete floors most of her life.

All these stories could have a happy ending. All these elephants could be brought to one of the amazing elephants sanctuaries there are. One of them is the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. This sanctuary has already agreed to take in Nosey if her owner would only let her go.

There are many other sanctuaries around the world. The animals would all be better off if only they could get there.
