Humans are so cruel to animals. Sometimes I wonder if the animals were the rulers and we were at their mercy. Probably they would be much better to us than we are to them.
WE have to right to exterminate them, whether they are elephants, dogs, cats, dolphins
or any other specie.

This is a beautiful example of an animal family. They interact like we do with ours, and also I am sure they have feelings like humans too.

Please stop the masacre of elephants to utilize the ivory for profit.

Cynthia thank you for this wonderful documentary about elephant mothers, a true love which needs to be protected rather then abused!
Thank you for being an activist with this urgent matter.

Thank you so much for this little video clip on elephant mothers. I am always so amazed by the depth of feelings and awareness elephants have for one another, particularly their babies. It touches my heart to see such care and devotion. If only we humans could learn that more. In appreciation for all the wonderful people in the world whose lives are devoted to observing and improving the lives of animals everywhere, particularly those in need. God Bless, Heidi

This unconscionable slaughter must be stopped! We can't take for granted that elephants, or any other precious species, will always be here if we don't honor their rights to live in peace in their own environments.

When will humans stop killing and inhumanely treating animals (domestic, farm and wildlife) for their own gain eg killing elephants for ivory by luring the mother through their babies, tigers for their skin and body parts, monkeys for lab experiments and in the case of the elephant, tiger and rhino causing their extinction and consequently no more ivory etc. It is time we respected animals whether wildlife, dairy cows for dairy products and animals for meat. We need to stop using cruel and painful experiments on animals especially where there are alternatives available and in most cases the results on animal testing are unreliable. I have heard about the USA Army cutting goats' legs off with trimmers and disembowelling them while they are still alive. What purpose does that serve?
Animals feel pain and have feelings just like humans and some species are highly intelligent. The 6 really intelligent species are chimps, elephants, octopus, crows, reef fish and dolphins for your interest.

Beautiful video. What amazing animals. Why do greedy humans continue to rape the earth and rob it of resources and the amazing creatures we were given to care for? If only they could see that slaughtering to extinction not only robs all of us of the beautiful things on this earth, it also puts a halt to their practices eventually. We all suffer. I don't care what culture they come from. Our regard for all animals should be borderless. Thankyou for making a difference to these amazing creatures. Heather, Australia
