Transcript of ELEPHANTS
Elephants are often seen touching each others with their trunks. Each touch means something different.
"A hundred years ago 100,000 elephants live in Asia. Now there are fewer than 35,000."
" Most of the ivory laving Africa was taken illegally and over 80% of all the raw ivory traded came from poached elephants"
"The most conservative estimates reckon 25,000 are being slaughtered annually for their tusks.
"Elephants will go days without eating or drinking to stay by a loved one dying."
"Male elephants battle each other during matting time. Sometimes they even fight until death. Only the stronger male gets to girl.''
If all animals have love, why can't an elephant be able to live long enough to experience it.
Elephants are just like us
Like people, elephants are intelligent, warm blooded mammals.
Elephants shed tears and grieve just like humans.
"Flapping the ears can express excitement and joy. In turn, the beating of the ears on skin can be heard.
The trunk can be a defensive or threatening. It can also touch and smell with the trunk allowing them to notice where the other elephant has just been, what it ate, and how it feels.
They are capable of sensing and analyzing small concentrations at odorous substances in the air.
"As elephants live in herds, they need several possibilities of communicating with each other. The trunk, ears, tails, body language, and naturally the voice are some of these means of communication."
" This illegal trade was largely responsible for reducing the African elephant population from 3-5 in 1980 to today's current levels."
" An estimated 100,000 elephant were being killed per year, up to 80% of herds were lost in some regions"
"Both African and Asian elephants are under threat form poachers who will kill them for ivory tusks. "
"As hunters have more and more powerful guns, it becomes easier for them to kill thousands of elephants just to chop off their tusks."
What humans have done
Humans have caused these magnificent creatures to become endangered and humans have the obligation to these baby elephants to do everything in their powers to right these wrongs.
If a baby elephants mom is killed an it can't find its mom, it is not attacked by a predator, it will die of starvation and a broken heart.
Why Tusks are essential
"They are natural weapons against predators such as tigers and cheetahs"
" They are also used for digging, taking bark off trees, and moving things out of the way.

"A baby elephant would get body warmth from it's mother, do it needs blankets to keep it from getting to cold.
"Without the mother to shelter it from rain and wind the elephant needs to be in a warm enviromnet at night."
