Petition: Stand Strong for Elephants

Every 15 minutes, on average, a poacher kills an elephant for its ivory tusks. Right now, the U.S. is the second biggest market for ivory – much of it likely from recently poached elephants – which means we are helping to pay the bills for these poachers, organized crime networks, militant groups and the others who are profiting from extinction. Fortunately, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service recently proposed strong new protections for African elephants, including a ban on the sale of non-antique ivory in the United States.

Elephants needing a room: hawkmoths on the march for a pupal pad

A herd of elephant hawkmoth caterpillars is trooping across my garden to pupate

These are arguably the most subtly beautiful of the charismatic hawkmoth grubs. They are deep brown and charcoal grey with four arresting “eyes” of black, brown and silver – part of an armoury of deterrents against voracious birds, which includes the sudden switching into “snake” mode when disturbed, to discombobulate predators.

The adult moth takes its name from the caterpillar’s trunk-like snout, although its bewitching pink hued wings are also the colour of a cartoon elephant.
