Saving The Asian Elephants « lancalass

My Sister Pauline, called Home Too Soon.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane , I would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again.

The greatest gift our parents gave us..was each other.

If I had a flower for every memory I have with you, I could forever walk in my garden.

Rest In Peace knowing how much I love you!!

All I ask is that you remember me at the alter of God.

A sundown splendid and serene,
A sister’s kiss upon your cheek,
A timeless moment when you are thanked,
You smile but cannot speak.
Such gifts are rich beyond compare,
And compensate for grief and care.
We lost a very special sister and best friend the day you were called home so suddenly and without warning..
Loved with a love beyond all telling,
Missed with a grief beyond all tears.
Goodnight and God Bless Pauline I love you and miss you so much…xxx

Re-united with her loving parents and brothers Peter and John, sister Patrica. Missed by her loving husband Peter also daughter Susan and Ebony her granddaughter,  son Anthony, and Grandsons.. Not forgetting  Brian and Granddaughter Julie.

All of you Rest In Peace!

 

Saving The Asian Elephants

Unless you live under a rock you’ll know about the plight of African elephants, which are falling victim to the ivory trade at an alarming rate.

But it’s rarely ivory poachers who threaten its cousin the Asian elephant; it’s holidaymakers.

Wildlife tourism across South East Asia is a money-spinning industry worth millions of US dollars a year. It plays a huge role in desecrating the highly endangered Asian elephant. Elephants giving trekking rides heavily laden with passengers, or shows with elephants performing degrading circus tricks, or paraded in costume through street festivals in extreme heat, through the din of firecrackers, drums and jostling crowds – all these attractions have the same purpose; to entice money from tourists. Unwittingly, holidaymakers are using their wallets to fuel exploitation and brutality to the Asian elephant for ‘entertainment’.

Tourist entertainments. Baby elephants, which sell for as much as $125,000, are snatched from the wild and taken for brutal pajan ‘training’ at forest camps that supply elephants to nationwide facilities.
A newly captured elephant will be beaten with iron rods, wooden planks and metal spikes, for an hour every day for months. In-between beatings the elephant handler (mahout) locks the elephant in a cramped isolation box traditionally called a kraal or ‘crushing cage’ where it is left dehydrated and starved for months. During pajan elephants suffer>>
