Meghan Markle falou em entrevista ao programa Good Morning America nesta semana sobre seu primeiro trabalho desde quando deixou a família real britânica com seu marido, o príncipe Harry.

Ela narrou o documentário Elephant, disponível no Disney+, serviço de streaming da Disney, e conta que está muito grata pela experiência de ir a campo conhecer a vida desses animais.

"Tenho muita sorte de poder ver de perto os elefantes em seu habitat natural. Quando você passa um tempo se conectando com eles e com a natureza selvagem, você entende de verdade que nós temos um papel importante na preservação e segurança deles", disse.

Em agosto de 2019, ela e Harry visitaram o lar dos animais na Botsuana, na África, a convite da ONG Elephants Without Borders (Elefantes Sem Fronteiras). Veja:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Today is #WorldElephantDay and we are pleased to announce that since we followed our friends at @ElephantswithoutBorders (EWB) on Instagram in July, when we were celebrating the environment, you and our friend @TheEllenFund (@TheEllenShow) have spread the word and EWB have been able to help protect 25 elephants by fitting them with satellite navigation collars! These collars allow the team at EWB to track the elephants, as well as to learn their essential migratory patterns to keep their corridors safe and open so future generations of elephants can roam freely. In honour of this amazing support, EWB have named their most recently collared Elephant...ELLEN! We can’t wait to see where she will go! Two years ago on World Elephant Day, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined Dr Chase to help in this conservation effort. Below, a few words from Mike and his partner Kelly at EWB: • ‘Today is a day to honor and celebrate the majestic elephant and to make a strong stand for conserving and protecting one of the world’s most beloved animals. elephants are intelligent, sentient beings capable of emotions from joy to grief. They are ‘environmental engineers,’ a key-stone umbrella species, and the fight to save them is in effect, a fight to save entire ecosystems and all wildlife. Today elephants are facing many challenges; habitat loss and competition for resources creates conflict with humans, climate change and fires destroy much needed resources and poaching for the demand of ivory makes elephants bigger targets than ever. African elephants are especially prone to human-wildlife conflict because of their large home ranges. Finding, preserving and creating elephant corridors is therefore of great importance in helping to maintain habitats suitable for movement and minimising human-elephant conflict. Corridors are a mitigation technique to better the livelihoods of local communities and the elephants themselves, by providing environment and ample space for wildlife to navigate from one habitat patch to another, without affecting the livelihoods of communities.’ • EWB - Dr Mike Chase, Ms Kelly Landen . by DOS © SussexRoyal Additional photos: EWB
