There is so much we can learn from the animals and their habitats if we took the time to study rather than kill and destroy them.

Noted and glad that this research is happening in a Petri dish and not harming an elephant! More reason to save these special sentient creatures ... May we turn the tide on elephant hunting and abuse!!! 💞🐘💗
