Last month, the city of Los Angeles announced that today, August 3, would be Elephant Awareness Day! In L.A. today, tons of compassionate activists will take to the streets to raise their voices for eles, and the good news is that YOU can join in from wherever you are!

Today, in honor of elephants everywhere, peta2, Rattle The Cage Productions, and Juliette West are teaming up to give you a sneak peek at How I Became an Elephant—a documentary about how elephants are used in Thailand and other countries (and how you can help!).

Here’s how it works:

  • Click the trailer below at any time today or tomorrow (August 4).
  • Rent the entire documentary for just $5! PETA will receive 10 percent of every rental.

Get inspired! Watch the doc and then speak up for elephants everywhere by tweeting @RinglingTweets and asking Ringling Bros. to stop beating elephants! Be sure to use the hashtag #ElephantAwarenessDay! Send us a screenshot of your tweet at for 500 points.

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
