Actually we need Elephants.
Don't wish for them to die because
considered a keystone species in the African landscape. That means
elephants play a key role in maintaining the balance of all other species in
the community. They pull down trees and break up thorny bushes, which help
to create grasslands for other animals to survive. They create salt licks that
are rich in nutrients for other animals. They dig waterholes in dry river beds
that other animals can use as a water source, and their foot prints create
deep holes that water can collect in. They create trails that act as fire
breakers and water run offs. Other animals, including humans,
depend on the openings elephants create in the forest and brush and in the waterholes they dig. Elephant dung
(droppings) is important to the environment as well. Baboons and birds pick through dung for undigested seeds
and nuts, and dung beetles reproduce in these deposits. The nutrient-rich manure replenishes depleted soils so
that humans can have a nutrient rich soil to plant crops in. Elephant Droppings are also a vehicle for seed
dispersal. Some seeds will not germinate unless they have passed through an elephant's digestive system.
I wonder what they used to do that. They must have had to glue that lego man together with super glue. Cause by the speed it would have to get up 78,000 feet that lego would have fallen apart by the first 100 or so. Interesting.
I'm so happy for Owen and Haatchi for becoming such great friends and staying strong and positive, life is what you make it and it seems that they are living a pretty good one. Good for them! Live on <3!
