On World Elephant Day, the public becomes aware of the plight of Asian and African elephants. While elephants are revered, respected, and loved around the world, we are on the verge of losing this magnificent animal. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, called for a commitment to the protection of elephants. On World Elephant Day, he tweeted that he would emphasize the importance of protecting elephants. Approximately 60% of Asian elephants live in India. There has been an increase in elephant reserves in the past eight years. In addition, he praised all those working to protect elephants.

Additionally, he expressed happiness about the increase in elephant reserves in the last eight years. Elephant conservation must be viewed in relation to the larger effort underway in India to minimize human-animal conflict and to integrate local communities’ traditional wisdom in advancing environmental awareness.

Among the threats facing African and Asian elephants are the escalation of poaching, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict, and mistreatment in captivity. It is the goal of numerous elephant conservation organizations around the world to improve protection for wild elephants, improve enforcement policies to prevent ivory poaching and trade, conserve elephant habitats, better treat captive elephants, and reintroduce captive elephants into natural, protected sanctuaries, when appropriate.
