Elephants eat 300 pounds of food per day. They flourished in Africa when
they could roam over huge areas of land, eating the vegetation in one area and
then moving on so that the vegetation could renew itself. Now, the area over
which elephants can roam is declining. Without some action, the elephants will
become extinct. What actions might save the elephants? What are the costs and
benefits of such actions?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
