Elephant is the giant animal present on the earth, and are considered as vulnerable animal in nature. Elephants are poached for ivory tusk; this ivory trade is considered as the biggest threat. Along with this, elephant is also used as a working animal in Asian countries and are displayed in circuses and zoos. These are considered as the keystone species and have a greater impact over their environment because of its large size. Due to ivory trade, elephant slaughter has increased and has resulted in a decrease in the number of elephants across the world. There are some families, which protect elephant and provide them shelter with all the necessary facilities required to live a healthy life.
