Stuffed Animal Elephant - Navy Seersucker Stripe
They say that an Elephant never forgets, and whilst that may be accurate, it’s also not the most incredible fact about the world’s largest land animal. Sadly the most incredible fact is that about 90% of the world’s elephants have been lost to human interference, mostly through the ivory trade. This plush rendition is a reminder of nature’s wonder but also the importance of our responsibility towards the lands on which we live.
