YieldEndangered Species Classroom On Elephants

This page contains a basic overview of many different ecological, behavioural, and historical factors on the African and Asian Elephant. Of particular interest is the overview on the "cause for endangerment". A basic but well written page if you are looking for a brief synopsis on the Elephant.

Living With Elephants By Ian Douglas-Hamilton
The Uneasy Truce Between Elephants and People
March 5, 1997

This article offers a brief glimpse into the situation of coexistence between the Maasai pastoralists and elephants. Due to the attraction of tourists to the Amboseli area and surrounding national parks, in Kenya  the Maasai have a great potential to take advantage of this fairly unique situation. Of particular interest is the update by Ian Douglas-Hamilton on his further findings on his following of several radio-collared elephants for over a period of a year. He found that the 'famous' elephants of Amboseli ventured into Tanzania, and that they will also travel long distances between Tsavo National Park in the east and Amboseli. In the past, the Amboseli elephants were considered isolated to the national park. This finding stresses the importance of establishing safety corridors for the elephants to continue mixing in order to maintain the overall genetic diversity.

Yield To Elephants

A Research Report From Sign Language Communication With Domestic Asian Elephants In Northern Thailand, 1994.

An interesting study into the capability of elephants to use some form of sign-language as a medium to communicate. Of any avenue of communication between our species and the elephants, this most likely has the greatest potential for development and study in the future. Obviously, experiments of this nature are very difficult to conduct and take an enormous time to get reasonable data. For a great book on Roger Fouts's lifetime experience in this field of study based with out closest living relative please read Next of Kin. Check it out!

An Elephant Links Page

This page is a great resource for many links to a large number of elephant sites including management, captive, circuses, personal pages, elephants in human culture, and quite a bit more. The potential resource of information on elephants that can be found through some of the links is quite good. By the way, please note that the links in the page in no way imply we support their practices or actions.

Introduction to the Proboscidea: Elephants, Mammoths, Mastodons

This is an introductory page into the Proboscidea. Although, there are only 2 species alive today there were once some 352 proboscidean species and sub species. As you probably know, the two existing species left from this evolutionary tree are the Indian elephant (Elephas maximus) and the African elephant (Loxodonta africana). The most famous of these extinct relatives are the mammoth and mastodon, but there were also shovel-jawed gomphotheres and other, less familiar groups such as the deinotherians. Check it out to learn more information on the evolutionary history of the elephant.
