JEACs – CAC – NO.3!

     
 

JEACs – CAC – No.3, led by Corben and Sorena, made the WWF-Canada News Blog on the 17th of July, 2013. This keen and dedicated team of JEACs held a two-day bake sale at their school, and raised money for WWF-Canada. Delighted with their efforts, WWF-Canada posted an article about them, on their blog – which can be found at the link below. CONGRATULATIONS, JEACs – CAC – NO.3 – KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! Many thanks to all the JEACs, parents, and other participants, for their hard work and dedication towards creating awareness and saving our planet. Also, a heartfelt “THANK YOU” to Kendal Gerard, Youth Engagement Officer, WWF-Canada, for her article – we are very grateful for the recognition of our JEACs group!

Moving video of 2 elephants reunited after 20 years.  The Dallas Zoo had an elephant named Jenny, who was alone for 20 years after they had sent one elephant to another zoo for mating.  There was talk about sending her to another zoo, but the outcry from animal lovers prevented that.  Now, finally, there are 2 more elephants.  Can you imagine the loneliness these animals felt to have been isolated for so long when they are naturally loving toward all members of their troop.  At least now they each have companions to spend their days with.

Jenny and Shirley were elephants at the same circus when Jenny was a calf, and Shirley was in her twenties.  The two lived one winter together, but then were separated twenty-two years ago.

It's very rare for elephants to display this kind of emotion in captivity, and it's probably the first time such a thing has been documented on film.

Just remarkable! And absolutely worth watching.
