March of the Penguins? Nope. Today’s post is about the funeral march of the elephants. I’ve heard about elephants doing amazing things, like painting with their trunks, but stories about their interactions with humans often elude me because I’m not well-versed in conservation news. This one struck me in the eye. In March, elephant conservationalist Lawrence Anthony passed away from a heart attack. Before he died, the elephants started walking to his home, which was over twelve hours away. Once there, they stood watch for two days. Their way of saying good-bye to their friend?
What an incredible story. Read “Saying Goodbye: Elephants Hold Apparent Vigil To Mourn Their Human Friend.”
