Great news for elephants! Today, the city of Los Angeles declared August 3 Elephant Awareness Day in honor of Juliette West and her work for elephants all around the world.
Remember Juliette West? If not, here’s the deal: Juliette is a 16-year-old high school student from suburban Los Angeles who, working alongside a team of activists from around the world, filmed How I Became an Elephant—a stunning, eye-opening, and heartbreaking documentary that shows the horrible ways that elephants are broken, neglected, and abused for human entertainment:
Congrats to Juliette and Los Angeles for this exciting step forward!
