Happy Weekend: Baby Elephant’s First Nap!

This past week, one Elephant Fact of the Day we shared on Facebook was about elephants sleeping. Did you realize that on average, elephants only sleep 4 hours a day/night and usually not all at once but in 30 minute periods? You’ll see why in this video from Elephants Never Forget - to sleep, elephants must get into a very vulnerable position of laying down on the ground.

If you enjoyed this short Happy Weekend clip, we encourage you to partner with award-winning Patricia Sims and Michael Clark in a documentary  which investigates the critical issues threatening elephants from the perspective of a young man and his elephant in Thailand. And there is a significant role to be played by YOU! CLICK HERE to learn more about the film, film-makers and join them to raise public awareness about poaching, helping to create a harmonious future for both elephants and humans for many years to come.
