Hey everyone, I'm Tessa and I'm the Directory of Advocacy for Elephanatics BC. We're a local elephant advocacy group that raises awareness and fundraises for the critical issues facing elephants.
On January 1st I'm kicking off the New Year by jumping into the frigid waters at English Bay in some yet undisclosed wild get up. Why would I torture myself like this?
To raise money for elephants of course!
Few people realise that Asian elephants suffer life long physical and emotinoal trauma as working animals in the tourist trade. Riding, performimg, painting, or baby elephants found in the streets of Bangkok are all vicitims of the tourist trade.
Your donation will help rescue a working elephant and retire her to the Elephant Nature Park - a sanctuary in northern Thailand with over 70 elephants.
Please join us on New Year's Day and witness the freezing human being I will be when I leap into the icy waters at English Bay Beach, downtown Vancouver.
