Why we are supporting World Elephant Day – a few words from Vida Natural founder Sally Bunker

“My two daughters Jessica(10) &Sally Bunker and children Ellie(8) are absolutely OBSESSED with animals! We have more cuddly animal toys and figures than we could possibly need, but … they do get played with A LOT. I love hearing the little imaginary scenarios that the girls make up when they’re playing. From a very young age, the girls have been very aware of animal cruelty and particularly confused with why someone would possibly cut off elephants tusks or worst still, kill them. Ellie loves all animals in particular dogs, but Jess’s favourite has always been elephants. I asked her why and she simply replied with … “because they are beautiful of course Mummy!”

We wanted to find a special way to celebrate World Elephant Day this year, what better than run a fun competition with some incredible prizes. Earlier this year we collaborated with Born Free and donate part of our sales to their amazing work. We hope that this competition will not only help to celebrate these magnificent creatures but also spread the word of the amazing work that Born Free are doing to help save our elephants and minimise the risk of poaching. The girls have both adopted an Elephant through the Born Free program. Their elephants are part of a large herd that live in Kenya’s Amboseli Park. This elephant family is monitored by the Amboseli Elephant Research Project and the girls are delighted that their adoption helps to protect them.

For me personally, I have been fortunate enough to see elephants in the wild. However, when you have small children it is natural that they would like to go to the zoo. After seeing them free in the wild in Africa it was devastating to see them in small enclosures with little area to roam. We only went once and it’s not an experience I wish to repeat! The girls were fully aware that the habitat the animals were kept indefinitely did not replicate where they should be in the wild. I appreciate that for some people a zoo will be the only possible way to ever see such magnificent creatures up close. I am sure UK zoos are treating the animals with respect and homing them the best they can. But it of course it will never be the same as their wild habitat which is where they should be returned.

We will continue to support all the wonderful work that Born Free are doing and can’t wait to have an “elephant” themed day on 12th August 🐘
