Elephants are among the world's most intelligent, sensitive animals and possess both empathy and self-awareness. They live in close family groups that are now being torn apart by increasing number of threats caused by human activities. Their natural habitats and migrations have been fragmented by development and industrial mono-crops such as palm oil and rubber trees plantations which have destroyed millions of hectares of forest ecosystems. 

Elephants are very important to humans and animals because they make ecosystems and make it possible for a myriad of plants and animals species to live in those environments as well. The loss of elephants gravely affects the biodiversity of the environment and the major causes of chaotic habitat. To lose the elephants is to lose an environmental caretaker.
