Ms. Moss knows her elephants. That is so heart-warming to see the mothers' and the babies interact with each other. How could anyone kill elephants (or any other animal or creature) for their ivory or hide? We must stop this slaughter of killing elephants for their ivory. If their were poachers for all animals, we would not co-exist with any animals at all. Animals can teach us so much more. They are smart and we are the dumb ones!

This was wonderful to see. Not only do we need more protected reserves, to eliminate all ivory trade and armed guards against poachers, but getting zoo elephants into sanctuaries would help those incarcerated individuals. I live in Seattle and it's very sad that our zoo has impregnated one adult about 70 times. Her calves only live a few years because she has herpes but they keep forcing her to have babies. The adults at the zoo actually don't get along well and are separated and kept in small barns much of the time.

Wow! Dr. Cynthia Moss sure knows her stuff about Elephants! If those Elephants just knew of how she loves them so and studies them so much, it's obvious it's her life. Keep up the great work, they're very lucky to have her in their corner!

Thank you Cynthia - you are an angel. God help the human race to appreciate all our animals (including our human animals) Please can we see the governments concerned doing something about this barbaric practice. Inprison, fine, shoot the bastards. They are the lowest of low and deserve to have their feet and hands cut off. Make the governments of these countries answer to the whole world and call a halt to this slaughter. I love elephants and have done from a very early age. Please if there is a God up there hear our plea.
