Elephants are very special animals. They are highly intelligent with complex social lives, living in close-bonded family groups and taking tender care of calves.
Elephants experience a range of emotions such as joy, sorrow and anger, and can communicate these with a range of vocalisations, expressions and gestures. Due to their great size, elephants have unique physical needs and require large amounts of space, food and water to survive. This can lead to conflict with human communities and Born Free is taking action to alleviate the threats they face and help people and elephants to live together.
