International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world to recognize the achievements of women, raise awareness of women’s equality, lobby for gender equality and raise funds for women-focused charities. But… on this Women’s Day, not only humans… animals also have to be considered. Looking at these animals… it is no wonder that they are working so hard to feed their family.
IFS officers Sushanta Nanda and Parveen Kaswan have shared two posts. One shared about the species of elephant… the other shared about the species of lions. The common thing between these two animals is…. Only female animals take care of the family. They also provide food for their children.
Prides of lions are run by generations of females who own and defend a territory together. In prides, the females also do most of the hunting and cub rearing.#International woman’s day. pic.twitter.com/QfOAYlqBjC

“Prides of lions have been run by women for generations. They meet. They protect each other. Women do most of the hunting and rearing of children. #InternationalWomensDay,” Sushantha Nanda captioned the video shared.
Do you know #elephant family is all women group. Made of #mother, #aunts, #grandmother & all others #ladies. Most of the times Male leave herd early. Kids are looked at by all female elephants in herd not only mother. Most experienced female makes all decisions for family. #WomensDay pic.twitter.com/ynvkYsTyHP

Parveen Kaswan shared a lovely photo of a herd of elephants. Some trivia about the species is also given. “Did you know #elephant family is an all female group. It consists of #mother, #aunts, #grandmother & all other #females. When the male elephant grows up..leaves the herd. Babies are taken care of not only by the mother but all the female elephants in the herd. Very experienced women for the family. All decisions are made. #WomensDay,” he shared.
