Big 5s

Eugenio Derbez

Actor / Writer / Comedian / Director

“There are so many animals in the wild that fascinate me. However, I do have a deep love and affection for elephants. I can spend hours watching them and learning about their way of life. The fact that elephants live in a strong family unit makes them so relatable and intriguing. The way the mothers look after their babies, teaching them and loving them, is incredibly moving.

Elephants are so protective and they band together to protect their young from any danger that may be lurking around. Their slow steady stride can be deceiving but once you see them run, you realize the true power they have.

Elephants can be so playful and fun, too. These creatures are so social that they even hug each other’s trunks when meeting at a waterhole. The most impressive thing about these majestic animals is their incredible memory and fierce loyalty.

I really hope that the day will come when poaching is no longer a threat to these beautiful creatures. Elephants should be free to live in the wild without the threat of cruel poachers.”
