About Elephant Thursday

Elephants are a vulnerable species. Estimates suggest that over 30,000 elephants are killed each year. They are targeted by poachers because of their ivory tusks, which fetch for hundreds of dollars per pound on the black market. If the poaching continues at this rate, African Elephants will be extinct within the next decade.

Founded by Satnam Narang, Elephant Thursday is a campaign to raise awareness to the plight of this magnificent animal.

Every Thursday, thousands of social media users publish an old photograph using the hashtag #ThrowbackThursday. With Elephant Thursday, we publish a photograph of an elephant using the hashtag #ElephantThursday because we want to prevent a future where the only time elephants are remembered is in a #ThrowbackThursday post.

We hope you'll join us by choosing to post an #ElephantThursday instead of a #ThrowbackThursday.

The marvelous photographs featured on this site were captured by the talented photographer Diana Robinson at Amboseli National Park in Kenya.
