How do African people deal with elephants being a hazard?
The people affected have tried to use repellents such as pepper to ward of elephants. Otherwise, the people may attack the elephant or scare it off with spears and whatever other weapons they have to use.
because mean people are removing their tusks for ivory
what is being done to help African elephant to survive?
African elephants are being threatened by illegal hunting for meat and ivory, human elephant conflict and habitat loss
Elephants are poached for the value of their Ivory. Poachers in Africa kill the elephants, who then sell them to the smugglers, and they sell them .
Asian elephants are smaller because their jungle habitat makes being large a disadvantage.
Because they are being poached/hunted for their Ivory.
I am quite certain that Asian elephants are mammals just like the African forest elephants and African bush elephants. It just makes more sense that all of the types of elephants would be mammals like one another. And from pictures that have been seen asian elephants were born without being in an egg.
African elephants have been hunted/are being hunted for their tusks a.k.a Ivory. Ivory is a precious material used by people all around the world to make expensive gifts and trophies and because of the demand for Ivory elephants world around have been hunted in large numbers and are currently facing the risk of extinction.
they are keep on attacking them so there are less attacks.
There have been test with South African elephants to see if they were really afraid of mice. Mice have stopped elephants in their tracts when placed in front of the elephant. The animal showed signs of being cautious and upset but not proven to be fearful.
Of about 40 elephants he took over the Alps, I believe all but one were smaller, Indian elephants with the one, larger, African elephant, being the exception.
people are leaving plants to grow for the elephants to eat not to lose
African elephants face extinction in the wild because of poaching and habitat loss. The largest land mammal, elephants reproduce slowly compounding the problem. You can help save African elephants in both small and large ways. Whether you travel to Africa to help out or find ways of helping locally, you can make a difference.
To save elephants from extinction, environmentalists are trying to prohibit the sale of ivory. They are also asking for heavy fines and punishments for poachers.
They stay.And eat.And just being an attraction for people.
Elephants have many special adaptations that help them to survive in the wild. The tusks are used for eating and for weapons. The structure of the teeth is important for being able to eat the large quantities of vegetation that elephants ingest each day. The trunk is a recognizable feature used for eating, bathing, and communicating with other elephants. The ears of African elephants are specialized for both hearing and cooling the body and much… Read More
it has been made illegal to kill the elephants but some people still do it any way.
Yes. Most Asian and African countries have banned elephant hunting and have started ranger patrolling in the forest areas to nab poachers.
Elephants reach maturity at 15-25 years of age. Their lifespan being about 60-70 years.
The first hazard control measure to be considered should be "Eliminate the hazard" through replacement or substitution of the hazard source. After that, in order, they are: * Use engineering to control the hazard and prevent exposure of people to it. * Establish and apply administrative procedures to prevent people being exposed to the hazard. * Require the use of personal protective equipment.
Elephants are being endangered by people because people use elephant tusks for piano keys.
The hazard from sharp instruments is the hazard of being cut.
* By stopping poaching (Killing of elephants) * By stopping habitat loss for elephants. We have encroached major areas of forests * By protecting them * By creating awareness among people about how great an elephant is
Elephants are the only land animals besides humans that can cry. They also mourn their dead and can tell if the body is a relative of theirs. They actually put leaves over it and caress it with their trunks, it's a little scary. African elephants were used by Carthage in their unsuccessful wars against Rome. Also, they love to eat watermelons. With just a flick of a toe the watermelon is sliced in two. As… Read More
Elephant Tusks are not being poached. Elephants themselves are being poached for their ivory.
yes elephants are being hunted in Africa because they trample on crops and kill them. another reason for elephant hunting is because the number of people in Africa is increasing so by killing the elephants it means that there is more space for the Africans to make shelter for themselves and grow crops.
Avoid being near elephants, especially baby elephants when protected by adult elephants.
Difference between a human being and an elephants digestive system?
elephants are useful to us as they were , and still are being used as a vehicle.
Elephants are known for being the largest land animal.. -your welcome-
A lot of things are being done to save animals in general people are making donations to the wildlife foundation
Chinese used 360 million yuan to stop some people from killing them.
Pink elephants are not real. you might dream of elephants being pink when your are sleeping.
There are grasslands elephants and smaller forest elephants. Cameroon has both. The African elephant can be found over most of Africa on the wide open plains and in the jungles unlike the Asian elephant there has never been a great deal of success domesticating them and making them a part of primary industry. so today the environment that used to support the African elephant is increasingly being taken over by farms leading to the slaughter… Read More
To make room for other elephants: They're very big :)
African-American is a broad, politically-correct term that is used to describe people of color. Because of this, Whoopi Goldberg is referred to as being African-American, even though she has vehemently denied being African.
If you will notice the hazard lights are not actually flashing, reason being, the hazard flasher relay is defective. Replace it.
There were once millions of these animals in Africa and India but now their numbers have been greatly reduced. They are endangered because of two reasons: Hunting & Poaching - Trophy Hunting and Ivory Poaching is the main reason for the decline in numbers of African elephants. There were once millions of these animals and now only a few thousand survive Habitat Loss - As human numbers grew, people started settling into forests and that… Read More
- pooping in puddles - being crazy - being crazy coloured (lime green with purple poka-dots) - licking them selves every 3 minutes - and they mate with each other every other month
Elephants are considered the 3rd smartest animal, first being the Great Ape, 2nd being the Whales & Dolphins.
Elephants are in danger, both because they are still being hunted for the ivory of their tusks, and because available habitat for elephants is shrinking, as people use the land for other things. Elephants are not presently close to extinction, but the population is declining. Since elephants are very widely distributed in zoos, there is some possibility that a captive population will continue to exist even if the wild population dies out.
The Indian and African elephant each have long gestation periods. Elephants gestate for 23 to 24 months before being born.
The blue whale is the world's largest and heaviest living mammal. The largest "land" mammals are elephants and hippos, with African elephants being the heaviest. (Like whales, hippos use the buoyancy of water to offset their great mass, and can move easily in rivers and ponds.)
because they are being poached for the ivory tusks and lions and tigers are getting the small and weak elephants so there are going to be no elephants left.
African leaders encourage people to feel pride about being African so that they can have nationalism. The leaders feel that Africans should have the right to vote and gain rights. This later then leads to Pan-Africanism, which is a belief that all Africans should work together for rights and freedoms.
Elephants have been known to kill people. There are different reasons as to why this may happen. If humans are seen to be imposing on the territory of the elephants or seen to be posing a threat to their young, they may attack. Young male elephants may do so when they are trying to prove themselves as being powerful during a mating season or when preparing to challenge a dominant male. Elephants have been known… Read More
Size The African elephant is significantly larger with bulls growing up to 4m tall whereas the biggest Asian males reach no more than 3.5m.
