At a time when its close relative, the African elephant, is flourishing, the Asian elephant is imperiled as never before. The demands of industry and agriculture, populations that are growing exponentially, illegal logging and other environmental degradation all conspire to rob this king of beasts of his birthright. Asias wild elephant population now hovers below 40,000 in the 13 countries of South and Southeast Asia which make up their habitat.
