Elephants are extremely intelligent and socially complex animals. Sadly, these amazing creatures are endangered because of poaching and habitat loss.
Humans are very social, too. One of the ways some people communicate is through social media. It allows them to interact with friends, share interests, and be part of a community. Social media is also a great tool for people to connect with others and help raise awareness for an important cause. But what if elephants had social media? What do you think they would say?
