An Elephant is killed
every 15 minutes

The African elephant will only survive if there is rapid cultural change, which makes it unacceptable to buy and collect ivory worldwide.

Tale2Tail is committed to curbing the demand on the ivory trade, through providing educational resources which inspire & empower children to make change themselves.

An Elephant for breakfast” - Teaching resources

“Every year, at the start of the summer holidays, Uncle Cosmo sends his nieces and nephews a gigantic parcel. It comes all the way from Africa to arrive on their doorstep in London. This year it is late, and when it finally arrives it brings with it a great mystery and a terrific adventure. Uncle Cosmo is in danger, and the children must follow the clues to save him. 'Phenomenal...' Rebecca Schillings, author of Lenilotte Loves to Dance. 'It's funny and comical and fills you up like you're eating chocolate.' Ollie, aged 11.”

Celebrities reading “An Elephant for Breakfast

We have a breathtakingly simple idea: we will read children a story, chapter by chapter, read by the leading lights of the arts, film and sporting world. This story, sent via social media, will help raise awareness of the plight of elephants and the devastating effects of the ivory trade. We believe that children can change attitudes regarding the social acceptability of buying ivory. They will halt the demand curve for ivory more swiftly and effectively than adults.

Joanna Lumley, Dan Smith and more join us to guide us through An Elephant for Breakfast.
