Today is World Environment Day and this year the theme is ecosystem restoration. As we talked about in our Earth Day post, elephants are keystone species and are important to both the survival of other animals and the maintenance of their physical environment. Because they roam over large areas, their impact (like their size) can be massive. They have been called “ecosystem engineers.”
We thought that today would be the perfect day to show you a few moments in time here in our sanctuary environment, which the elephants help to thrive every day.
