Summary
Elephants have fascinated man since early civilisation. Ancient writers dwelt on their intelligence, their capacity for learning and their gentle character. Modern biologists have discovered they possess one of the most advanced and harmonious social organisations in the world of mammals. Yet elephant history has been dominated by periods of brutality and persecution. African elephants were used in ancient times to fight in wars. The Romans threw them into gladiatorial games. But, above all, it was the demand for their ivory that made Africa's elephants one of the most vulnerable animals on earth
