We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month–time again for some good news to take you into June with a smile.

The story I’ve chosen for this month put a big smile on my face, and I’m happy to share it with you. It’s the story of a national park in Chad, where elephants are making a great comeback after being poached unchecked for years. In Zakouma National Park, elephants are back from the brink of decimation.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

These are the cohosts for this month: Shilpa Garg, Inderpreet Kaul Uppal, Peter Nena, Andrea Michaels, and Damyanti Biswas.

    1. Finding stories like this once a month is something that I’ve come to look forward to. And especially the stories like this. I didn’t even think about it, but this post dovetails nicely with the post that’ll be going live tomorrow morning. Tomorrow’s post is for the monthly book club, and there are some serious issues raised in the book we read about animal cruelty, and in particular, cruelty to elephants and other circus animals.


  1. Despite so many dangers and threats to life, the team is waging a war against the illegal wildlife trade and protecting the wild life is sooo amazing. More power to them. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful story, Amy! 🙂
