Gisele Bundchen Feeds a Baby Elephant in Africa

Gisele Bundchen Feeds a Baby Elephant in Africa

Gisele Bundchen smiles while bottle feeding a brown baby elephant in this pic posted on her Facebook page.

“When I went to Africa I discovered that elephants are one of the smartest and most complex mammals on earth. If we don’t protect them, they can be extinguished,” the 31-year-old Brazilian supermodel wrote.

“The rising price of ivory and the possibility of being exchanged, not just for money but for arms and ammunition has helped the black market to expand, causing the death of more than 30,000 elephants a year, according to the NGO Avaaz. Last year, nearly a ton of this substance was apprehended,” added a post on Gisele‘s blog.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) has created a “Say NO to Ivory” campaign to help engage politicians and stop the poaching of elephants. Sign the petition on IFAW’s Facebook page!

FYI: Gisele is wearing Joe’s classic bootcut jeans.

Nice to see Gisele commiting herself to such a great cause. There was a time when she had to swing padded bras and blow kisses for VS campaigns. I prefer watching her doing dignified actions.

Man or Woman?

@Angel: Actually, Bunchen is German ethnically but Brazilian by nationality and I hear that now she is an American? Is that true? I am German but sill American.

That is one ugly dude

I’m glad to see that Gisele is paying more attention to elephants and animals, rather than football which is NOT an endangered game.

isn’t that the Trump brats in the bushes taking aim?

So, uhm, Gisele Bundchen has discovered that elephants are smart and could be extinguished.. Good for you Gisele, that’s a good girl…

@Ina:
of course recently discovered, she needed a good thing on her rep since the whole Football controversy when she refused to apologize just like previous controversy on saying most pregnant women usually treat their bodies like garbage,she instead followed a strict diet when she was pregnant. And American women are dumb to use drugs when giving birth, she went all natural and gave birth in her tub. and never apologized,she is superior to all. we should bow down to the most powerful supermodel.

Africa is not a country

@Teri: get over it and please quit living vicariously from what a model says, lmao….Its only further proof why she is the last supermodel because EVERYTHING she says and does is publicized reminiscent of the mega famous 90s supermodels plus all the A list modeling work. can’t wait to see all her Forbes rankings this year…

She has nothing of a Brazilian: neither sympathy nor the beauty of a Brazilian woman. So for all those who say she is German they are not wrong. Thank you from Brazil.

@Bia: yet she’s the most famous and iconic Brazilian of all times. Rolling Stone Brazil put her on their cover and called her “the biggest Brazilian popstar of all time” and the UK had a voting poll to name the most famous Brazilian ever and she came in 2nd to pele. oh and she’s had more Brazilian Vogue covers than any person/model ever. Over 20. oh and she’s on Brazilian gossip covers just about every week. Represents their biggest bank,clothing stores and lingerie companies et al..

A quick visit to her blog says she traveled to Nairobi and Kenya. and teri she actually took this trip long before the Superbowl! The beginning of Janaury to be exact. It boggles the mind why its just NOW getting any kind of publicity, but I’m not complaining. She does alot of good but it never gets reported on. http://allafrica.com/stories/201201160840.html

It does not interest me what the press says … gisele has nothing of the Brazilian spirit. But yes … she did a lot of magazine covers at the time when we could not see his real face and skeleton without being photoshoped. Long live the Internet!

@lilli:

Thank you!!! So annoying how Africa is portrayed as a country.

She’s not aging well! looking more and more like a man in drag, just unattractive
I feel bad for Tom Brady, Bridget is way much hotter and prettier
