Elephants are the largest land animals and one of the longest lived. These magnificent, strong and extremely intelligent creatures have no natural enemies apart from humans.
People have always valued elephants because of their size and strength. Asian elephants have been captured and trained to work for human beings for two thousand years. They have been used in battle from the 3rd century up until World War II. Because they are easily trained, they have been used to transport goods and to carry huge logs from the forest which were once their homes. Approximately twenty-five percent of the world’s population of Asian elephants have been caught and trained to do various jobs, including carrying passengers and helping to capture more wild elephants.
Elephants are considered to be more intelligent than most animals, including domestic dogs and cats. This is shown by the way they can easily learn to do tricks and perform tasks, as well as by the playful behaviour of young elephants, who energetically play games of hide and seek, tug of war and tag.
Elephants also show interesting social behaviour. They live in close families which are headed by the oldest female. Families are made up of sisters, cousins, aunts and nieces and may stay together for life. However, if a herd becomes too large, some females may leave and start another herd. Elephant families communicate by trumpeting to one another. It is important to them to stay in touch with one another. If family members are separated even for a few hours, they greet each other by running, trumpeting, clicking tusks and rubbing each other’s bodies with their heads when the meet again. Elephants are incredibly loyal, and will risk their lives for other family members. They celebrate the birth of new elephants and even cry tears when a family member dies.
Over the past 40 million years, more than 600 species of elephants have walked on the earth. Now, there are only two species left alive. In the year 1900, the elephant population was between five and ten million, but due to widespread hunting and destruction of their natural habitats over the last century, this number has been reduced to around 640,000. Sadly, it is uncertain whether or not the species will survive.

Tourism often has negative results for local communities. Tourist go to museums, buy souvenirs, enjoy the beaches and see the sights without interacting without interacting with the local people. For this reason, local people often see visitors only as a source of money. There is no interaction at all except over money, and so there is no mutual respect. When young people see visitors with plenty of cash they may grow unhappy with their traditional way of life. There may be environmental changes as homes and villages are often destroyed to make way for hotels. Although tourism brings in money, it leaves behind problems like discontented young people and environmental damage.
