The University of Alabama recently created the organization Tide for Tusks to “raise awareness of the threat of extinction for the African Elephant due to ivory poachers.”

You can support their campaign by donating, following the activity of Tide for Tusks through either their Facebook group or their Twitter feed @tidefortusks, and by tweeting or Instagramming messages using the hashtag #savetheelephants.

To add our voice to this initiative, we’d like to use our blog space this week to share a few articles on the African elephant as well as show some photographs from the University Archives demonstrating how important the elephant is to our community.

As the largest university in the United States with the elephant as a mascot, we all must contribute to ensure the continued life of this majestic species.
