This fundraiser is for the benefit of an ongoing project of Elephant Voices, an amazing group whose work is quite perfectly expressed in their mission statement:
To inspire wonder in the intelligence, complexity and voices of elephants, and to secure a kinder future for them through conservation, research and the sharing of knowledge.
I've always been drawn to intelligent, resilient, creative, curious, complex creatures. (Elephants are, of course, much more than that.) While I still can't decide on my favorite rock band, I have no second thoughts with regard to my favorite land mammal: all three/four living elephant species. Not that I've ever been asked that question.
The largest land mammal on the planet needs our help.
Peace and love,
P.S I have five short stories about elephants: a youngster who made deals with the Moon; a rookie with the Sun on his behind; a lord of the land who had palaver with a blue dragon, a beaver, a hare, and a turtle; an elephant postman; and a traveler to another dimension. I've given the stories away as a gift/token to friends. Want to read one (or all) to your children (or yourself)? Just let me know.
