"They (Elephants) are born with fewer survival instincts than many other animals. Instead, they must rely on their elders to teach them the things they need to know. Today, however, the pressures humans have put on the wild elephant populations, from poaching to habitat destruction, mean that the elderly often die at a younger age, leaving fewer teachers for the young".
I made this elephant necklace and is on sale at Frilldesign Etsy shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6264368
