We need to save the elephants to help evolve and enlightened humans. We need to save them for future generations of humans, and of elephants. We need to save them because we can.
Alas, the Indricotherium’s huge 18 ton mass will never be seen by another human. The Humans of their time just didn’t have the tools to do anything but kill them. While it is obvious that we have become better killers in the last 25 million years, have we grown as humans?
There’s a group that have consistently helped the plight of the African Elephants: Save the Elephants http://www.savetheelephants.org/ and their new site: Elephants in Peril: http://www.elephantsinperil.org/
Helping this cause won’t make you richer or cooler, but you will get a bucket load of good Karma to offset all the wrong things you did.
Cheers, Richard Uzelac
