Help Protect the Asian Elephants and their Habitats

Sometime in June I wrote a hub on hubpages about the ELEPHANT PARADE IN LONDON  and asked you guys who read the hub to please sign the petition. Well I got an email today thanking me for signing the petition but there's still more that can be done. I am copying and pasting the email that I received from the Elephant Family ( Please find the time to go and sign the petition. It really only takes less than one minute and you'd be doing a really good thing for these endangered Asian elephants.

Dear Leandra

You’ve no doubt heard by now, what a jumbo success Elephant Parade London was – over £4million raised, and over 13,000 signatures added to our petition. We want to thank you so much for adding yours!

While the hearts and minds of the public have been captivated by Elephant Parade London we wanted to follow up our success with a short animated video as a thanks and call for further support. Although the elephants have disappeared from London, we still need help to make sure they don’t disappear from Asia.

You can help us again. Watch our video here.

We urgently need a minimum of 100,000 people to sign the petition by Christmas time. How can you help? Share the video on facebook and twitter, and forward this email to your family, friends and colleagues. The more signatures we get the more Elephant Family can do. We'll be able to deliver the petition to 10 Downing Street and demand a debate in the House of Commons. And as you'll see in the video, that's just the beginning. 

Massive population growth and the escalating destruction of habitat is forcing the Asian elephant into ever decreasing pockets of land. Unable to roam free, they are coming into daily conflict with humans, with suffering on both sides. They are simply running out of space and time. Only government intervention and the protection of habitat can save them now. 

Thank you for your support.
Yours sincerely,
Dan Bucknell,
Head of Conservation and Campaigns
