Elephant Parade

 Our Girl Scout Troop learned all about elephants and how they are treated. We watched a movie called “How I became an Elephant”. It was sad and people were mean to the elephants. Trainers would use tools that look like pick axes to train the elephants. They would chain their leg and wouldn’t feed them. They could even do this to elephants at the fair or circuses.

We also learned about the Elephant Parade in Dana Point. There are giant elephant statues that are painted and will be sold to raise money for the Asian Elephant Foundation. We painted our own elephants and auctioned them off. We raised $244.00 for the Asian Elephant Foundation.

We are going to go to the parade to see them all next week. It was fun to learn all about the elephants. Now when I see them I will know how they can be treated sometimes and I won’t ride them or think it’s neat when they do tricks because it’s really sad.
