As amazing as it would be if they did, animals don’t help save animals. People do…or don’t. African elephants are one of many animals that need to be saved. However, human-elephant conflicts are known to have occurred for many, many years, all over the African elephant’s continent-wide territory, and is one of the reasons elephants are killed by local communities. Elephants readily leave protected areas on an expedition through people’s crops. They eat maize, pumpkin, beans, watermelon… There is very little that doesn’t get taken. In the process, entire fields are destroyed, and months of hard work to plant and nurture important food supplies are wasted. It is, undeniably, a big problem.
