Bob Barker loves helping animals of all sizes!
Three aging elephants - Toka, Thika and Iringa - currently reside at the Toronto Zoo, but it is getting to the point where the zookeepers, animal activists, and Bob Barker want to retire them over at California.
But that's a long trek!
And Elephants can't drive, so it isn't like they can go on a road trip.
Luckily, Canadians are known for their generosity - so the elephants will be getting an air lift from the Royal Canadian Air Force C-17.
And they'll get by with a little help from Mr. Barker!

Leonardo DiCaprio and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have come together to help save elephants!
In a crazy huge global effort, 1.4 MILLION people have come together and singed a petition calling for the end of the ivory trade in Thailand.
What's incredible is that the Thai government listened!!

Rumors have been flying about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's wedding ever since the news of their engagement broke.
Will it be an intimate, small scale ceremony? Or a no holds barred extravaganza of luxury?
There were rumors flying recently that the wedding would be over the top, with dancing ponies and a whole bunch of elephants!
Now it seems that that's just not true.

Leonardo DiCaprio is a HUGE animal lover.
He's a total eco warrior!
We just know if he wasn't off making our favorite movies, he'd be in Africa, riding rhinos, chasing off poachers.
But because he can't hang out in Africa all the time, he helped launch the World Wildlife Fund's new campaign "Hands Off My Parts."

Sad…ivory trading has been illegal since 1989, but nothing is stopping it!!
In fact…it's growing…maybe even booming business.
Studies have shown that as the demand for ivory increases in China and more and more organized crime syndicate join the trade, the ivory industry will continue to skyrocket.

This is just AWFUL!
At the Tsavo National Park in Kenya, the Wildlife Service said they believe a gang of 10 poachers killed a whole family of elephants!
That is so sad!
They are currently pursuing the poachers who are believed to have killed 11 elephants.
The gunfire attack killed the whole family, then the poachers chopped off
