The Horror of Elephant Poaching in Kenya: Shocking Photos by Chris Jordan : TreeHugger via @TreeHugger

"The phenomenon of elephant poaching strikes me as profoundly symbolic. As the largest animal to walk the earth, the elephant is one of our planet's most sentient beings, with a brain about four times the size of ours, equal or greater in intelligence to dolphins and higher order primates. Elephants are one of the few animals to grieve their dead in community. In my view elephants should be revered and preserved as sacred planetary treasures.
