#repost @jklamlam (@get_repost) ・・・ Via @halfbloodprincess._ ・・There are around 600 captive elephants in Kerala and elephants are used in two-thirds of the 3,000-plus festivals that take place annually in the city between December and May. The grandest of all the festivals is Thrissur Pooram, which is 36 hours of non-stop celebration and involves around one hundred elephants. Gods in Shackles offers information about the decline of India’s wild elephants and the impact this is having on the captive elephants, who are rented out and overworked to maximize profit for their owners. There are roughly 26,000 wild elephants in India, which is almost 60 percent of the world’s wild Asian elephant population. Other than a handful of females, it’s male tuskers who are used at the temples, which has resulted in a greatly skewed gender ratio in the wild. Because Indian elephants have been labeled an endangered species, there is actually a ban on their capture, but they are still captured illegally due to layers of bureaucracy and corruption. While the temple elephant situation is certainly disturbing, the film’s inclusion of periodic commentary by highly regarded figures in India brings viewers an element of hope. The poet laureate, a co-founder of the Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre, representatives from both the Indian Institute of Science and the Animal Welfare Board, and a well known priest in Kerala all express concern for these elephants and disapproval of their exploitation.---Although I had known to some degree about India’s temple elephants, Gods In Shackles thoroughly educated me about the extensive magnitude of the crisis. Elephants are considered gods in a culture that exploits them. While this is indeed tragic and unjust, Sangita Iyer’s highly dedicated and passionate efforts are giving India’s heritage animal a fighting chance at change. #elephants  #godsinshackles #india #tourists #kerala🌴 #captivity #elephantsofinstagram

I know animals in captivity upset folks but I did enjoy how the #elephants started to dance in unison between showtimes.  They seem happy and well fed, thank God.

Listen 🔊. “Dan segala sesuatu yang telah mereka perbuat tercatat dalam buku-buku catatan (yang ada di tangan Malaikat). Dan segala (urusan) yang kecil maupun yang besar adalah tertulis.” (QS. Qomar: 52-53). “Dan diletakkanlah kitab, lalu kamu akan melihat orang-orang bersalah ketakutan terhadap apa yang (tertulis) di dalamnya, dan mereka berkata: ‘Aduhai celaka kami, kitab apakah ini yang tidak meninggalkan yang kecil dan tidak (pula) yang besar, melainkan ia mencatat semuanya.’ Dan mereka dapati apa yang telah mereka kerjakan ada (tertulis). Dan Rabbmu tidak menganiaya seorang jua pun.” (QS. Al-Kahfi: 49) . . . . . #rhino #babyrhino #saverhinos #wildlife #animals #extinction #extinct #elephants #tiger #lion #animallovers #poaching #poachers #last #savewildlife #saveearth #sad #heartbreaking #vegan #govegan🌱 #conservation #nature
