Wild at Heart [electronic resource]: The Plight of Elephants in Thailand

Elephants in Thailand have traditionally been captured in the wild and trained to work in the logging industry. However, with Thailand's ban on logging in 1989, elephants and their keepers lost a crucial source of employment and means of survival. In addition, loss of habitat is further challenging the survival of elephants. This science bulleting travels to northern Thailand to take a look at a project that may be able to help: an experiment in which elephants are returned to the forest to see whether they can form new family groups and survive on their own in the wild.
