Asian Elephant Script
the year 6’s have been working on scrips because on Friday we are going to the zoo and we are going to make films about endangered animals I am doing the Asian elephant. I an going to say in P.T.C Asian elephants are now classified as endangered.
What do you think of when someone says Asian elephants. I think they are beautiful majestic powerful, mistreated and large. It is the largest mammal in the world. It is originally from Southeast Asia India and Nepal in west and Borneo in east. More than 100,000 Asian elephants may have existed at the start of the 20th century, but numbers have halved and continue to decline. With only 40,000-50,000 elephants left in the wild that may seem a lot but it is not , Asian elephants are now classified as endangered.
They need 150kg of food to survive a day. People are cutting their food down to create farming land. This can result in the number of elephant deaths rising to levels that cause them to become endangered. This is a serious issue and something needs to be done about it.
Elephants are also taken from the wild for the live elephant trade –mainly going to Thailand for the tourism industry where tourist ride on them for enjoyment and lock them up for tourism. These elephants are kept in harsh conditions and they are treated very poorly.
We are the ones that are making those beautiful creatures suffer
We are the ones that are killing them by enslaving them and removing their habitat
And I believe that we need to do something to help these animals stay alive. This can be done through donations to charities or even try to bring awareness to other people about the bad things that are happening to these amazing creatures.
