The news and social media are flooded with dire messages and videos that evoke profound feelings of hopelessness, paralyzing people emotionally, who eventually tune out. While it is important to share the challenges facing elephants and wildlife, VFAES believes in offering hope and reasons for people to become engaged. 

Each of us have God given talents, unique skills that can be put to use to alleviate the suffering of elephants. Simple things like sharing the social media posts, emailing friends, inviting them home and having “Living Room Conversations” over a glass of wine or dinner can make a world of difference in the lives of elephants.
