Unfortunately some view the elephant as a destructive beast that ruthlessly bulldozes its environment. In comparison, it is estimated man is clearing more forests in one day than all the elephants in Africa will 'destroy' within one year. Elephants provide a vital role in their ecosystem. They modify their habitat by converting savannah and woodlands to grasslands. They provide water for other species by digging water holes in dry riverbeds. The depressions created by their footprints and their bodies trap rainwater. The paths they create become natural firebreaks and rain water conduits. Help preserve the elephant by taking one of these adorable papier mache elephants home with you today. They are handmade from recycled paper and plastic so they are helping to save the planets ecosystem while adorning yours. Introduce these elephants into your habitat and see how transformative the elephant can be!
