Good news!
Sad though, about the massacre at the World Heritage site, as it seems that's what it took to get them better protected.

Hope the elephants carry on to defeat the poachers for doing any harm on any of the wild animals. Elephants are intellectual beings with a loving and concerning heart.

Noted - praying it works - good for them, but it never ceases to amaze me that things must get totally out of control before people step in to try and save the situation.
