Elephants are highly social animals with very strong social bonds. Females and their calves spend most of their time with their family groups, traveling, resting and feeding. The Matriarchs lead these family groups. Sadly, these older elephants are also the primary target for poachers due to their larger tusks. Research has shown that after a Matriarch dies, daughter elephants take up their mothers’ position in networks, making pachyderm networks resilient to the effects of poaching.
To help in raising awareness and funds for the protection of endangered animals, I am honoured and thrilled to be supporting the phenomenal organisation, WildAid, by donating this Limited Edition Print (1/10) to their Major Gala Fundraiser to be held in Beverley Hills, USA, later this year.
