This majestic creature is a part of ancient legends and tales. 
Their massive size and proud demeanor command respect from all those fortunate enough to see them. 
The elephant has long had a pivotal place in the lives of the peoples of Central and South-East Asia. 
And while the need for these animals for physical labor decreases with the rise in modernization,
their legendary status still maintains their importance in the peoples' lives. 
 It is because of this that the people work to preserve the elephant.  They recognize these creatures as more than beasts of burden,
but also as a pivotal part of their pasts and an important aspect of their futures.
