Elephants are the only mammals aside from humans to have something approximating a funeral when a family member dies. They try to heal them, they comfort them, then they often have a rudimentary burial. Which brings me to the important part.There's this site called Quora.com. A lot of people write there, myself included. A few of the writers there got together and decided to help a fellow Quoran and ranger in Zambia, Rory Young, in his efforts to prevent the extinction of African elephants. They could become extinct within six years if action isn't taken. So learn more about what they're doing. And if you are up for it, spread the word and help.
