Those who protect the endangered are heros and thumbs up for any noted celebrities/people that spread
the message of this atrocity.
There must be more pressure on the countries who allow poaching as well as smuggling any ivory into
the US. There are strict laws for ivory to be sold or allowed in the US (has to be an antique=100 yrs
old).

Ivory laws are full of loopholes, but states are moving to fix them

This question shows my ignorance and I apologize in advance.

Can people adopt elephants as they can some other endangered species? How many acres would be needed per animal? What type of climate? What do they eat?

No you cannot and should not adopt elephants. There are some wonderful rescues, one in Tennessee and one in California(others in the USA as well) which rescue elephants either from private zoos or retired from circuses. You can "adopt" by supporting financially the facilities already set up with proper nutrition, vet care and terrain to ensure healthy elephants. Google Elephant Rescue for more information.

Plus elephants are very social. An elephant alone is an abused elephant.

There might be programs where you could virtually adopt. Send them $x and thay'll send you a photo and keep you updated on the elephant's doings.

I've seen this with other animals but never specifically for elephants.

^^^wonderful news.
Just saw a documentary, "Elephants-Spy in the Herd." Not only was it interesting but so informative
that I learned much more about them. They use a spy cam (ground level) disguised as dung which they
call the dung cam. lol

Elephants Spy In The Herd | John Downer Productions

Here it is or it is also on Netflix

Where's your nose?

Such a sweet furry little dumplin'. I would love to do this. Bet she was instructed not to put her hands on them.
