You see elephants represented in traditional bead art, in carvings and sometimes on old buildings. Elephants represent power and strength.

Did you know an elephant drinks about 200 litres of water a day? That is 100 times the amount of water you drink! Hunters kill elephants so that they can collect the tusks as a trophy. Pangolins are killed as some people falsely believe that medicine made from their scales can make them strong.
