Since 1996, Americans have celebrated National Elephant Appreciation Day every Sept. 22.
Wayne Hepburn, the founder of Mission Media Inc., created in 1996, received a paperweight of elephants on parade from his daughter as a gift. He became fascinated by them. He amassed a huge collections of elephant books and paraphernalia. His fascination and love of elephants, led to the creation of this day so you and I can stop and enjoy this huge, lumbering beast.
