Elephant Appreciation Day

Yes, it really is... September 22 is the official Elephant Appreciation Day! It was declared in 1996 because the elephant...

- is the largest land mammal of our era,
- is unique among mammals for its trunk,
- is the most noble of beasts on earth,
- is most undeservedly threatened with extinction,
- has been man's benefactor in numerous ways throughout history,
- is entertaining and amusing,
- is gentle and friendly,
- contributes to ecosystem development and maintenance,

and generally deserves to be appreciated and upheld as an example of courage, strength, self-reliance, patience, persistence, and general high quality of being.
