Artist Comments: Modern elephants are the last survivors of the old and varied "trunked" family of mammals that once ranged the entire planet. These heirs of such mighty creatures as the extinct mastodon and mammoth and occupy a unique place in their habitat in Africa and Asia. Both species are threatened by shrinking living space and poaching for the ivory trade. -WWF
