Description

Across Asia, elephants and the forests where they live are rapidly disappearing. But in the small country of Myanmar, the magestic Asian elephant continues to thrive. There, thousands of elephants work alongside humans harvesting teak and other valuable woods using environmentally sensitive foresting methods. This inspiring environmental success story reveals how elephants and humans are working to preserve the endangered Asian elephant and its habitat.
