What should we do?
We have the opportunity to go visit an elephant sanctuary! We've listed some basic pros and cons on a T chart to discuss with your students, but thought you might like a bit more background information. Elephants were once widely used for farming and forestry work in Thailand, but increasingly people are using mechanized means (tractors) to do this work. This means domestic elephants are not needed.
