Hereby is a piece of Dr. Zhou’s Opinion on World Elephant Day in China.
Many of our protected areas still have industrial civilization practices. In 2018, Xishuangbanna Wild Elephant Valley celebrated World Elephant Day, but for humans. Please see related news reports for more information. It’s the equivalent of throwing a birthday party and letting the birthday boy dance for fun. This is a messed-up elephant event that is being held for people rather than elephants.

Anyone with a working grasp of science and environmental preservation would tell you that this is complete nonsense. But what are the protection experts doing in the face of these errors? Why is it that such a terrible idea is being promoted?
In 2018, I posted a Weibo regarding the planning of the Xishuangbanna Elephant Day. The elephant is in excruciating pain. It now has over 200,000 views. I’m not sure what they’ll do this year on World Elephant Day. I’d like to remind everyone that now is the time to call attention to the difficulties in the protection job and provide a solution. Don’t be hesitant to ask questions or use different voices to address the elephant in the room.
2021 World Elephant Day, we will hold an international seminar, and now we have formed an international elephant expert working group. We have gathered many Western authorities and experts on elephants and under their joint initiative, we have also received support from many experts in Africa and Asia. With so many resources to support us, let us make a difference, lead the community toward a shared future for humanity, and contribute to the world’s creation of sustainable civilization.
