A cute way to help animals: why elephants need sweaters

Elephant rescue and conservation center located in north India. Winters around here can be chilly, so the volunteers decided to knit sweaters for the elephants.

It takes about a month to make a sweater for the world’s largest land mammals. The volunteers want the sweaters to be not only warm and comfortable, but also colorful and even fashionable.

“It’s very important to protect our elephants from the cold during the extreme winter.” They have experienced abuse, they are weak and vulnerable, often get pneumonia,” the centre’s co-founder Kartik Satyanarayan said. “The cold also exacerbates the arthritis that the rescued animals suffer from.” “

Three sweaters have been knitted so far. Warm blankets protect the rest of the elephants from the cold.
