Elephants have such sad expressive faces that it is hard to imagine how anyone could harm them. They have drawn lips and sagging shoulders; a long, drooping demeanour; sad, knowing eyes capable of laying on the guilt. Yet, it would appear that guilt is not enough to save them. Eighty years ago there were perhaps 6 to 9 million African and Asian elephants. Today there are roughly half a million left. Day by day, they are getting closer to extinction.

They are the only land mammal, other than primates, that can undeniably copy sounds, the researchers claim.The discovery was made when an orphan elephant called Mlaika, who lived near a road, was observed to make a series of convincing truck sounds. Under normal circumstances, vocal imitation is probably used to cement bonds between elephants, they added. "Elephants may be using their learning abilities to develop vocalisations similar to group members," said lead author Joyce Poole, of the Amboseli Elephant Research Project, Kenya.
