How to cast a shield charm over the animals affected by these hurricanes

To help these animals, we’d like to share a few of the many shelters, rescue organizations, and sanctuaries that could use our help.
Use these eleven dance moves the next time you need to lure an erumpent into your suitcase.

In honor of our Erumpent Rescue campaign, we want to introduce you to the magical creatures that the campaign is all for.
Our magical creature in the Wizarding World is the Erumpent. The erumpent is a “medium-sized” beast with a thick, rope-like tail, grey skin, and a sharp horn on its nose. It is prized among some witches and wizards for the magical properties of its tail and horn, so unfortunately erumpents are hunted and killed legally. In the muggle world, the erumpent finds its counterpart in the rhinoceros, a being which similarly is grey-skinned and has one or two horns, but which differs in size and is in fact illegal to kill and trade parts of.
