    This is wonderful, Debbie. We watched a nature program on TV last night all about these gentle giants…..very touching & informative.

  • You are always the first to comment Marsha!! Thank you so much! I just love these wonderful creatures and love watching them for hours wading and frolicking at the waterholes. They are very special animals and hunted so senselessly for their tusks!
