Justin Trudeau, who is on a six-day official visit to India along with his family, paid a visit to the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in Mathura.
Trudeau and his children – Xavier, Ella-Grace, and Hadrien – also fed the elephants that were rescued by the conservation centre. They enjoyed feeding the elephants and learning about each of the animals, all of whom have been given a second chance at life free from abuse and cruelty.
" I am showing my son Hadrien how important it is to care for our wildlife, to respect the extraordinary nature that we have around us. As cities grow, as populations increase, we have to make sure we are taking care of elephants and other wildlife that have been here forever and are having to adjust to a world that is changing. " - Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister, Canada
Trudeau urged the world to respect and protect this endangered specie.
In a tweet the young politician praised the organisation. He also let his son Hadrien feed the Jumbo.
