In the future, the Asian Elephant faces many challenges.
  But people everywhere are beginning to show a willingness to preserve
wild spaces for elephants. 
 Our message is, if we all work together, the future will be one in which our own
grandchildren will share the planet with future generations of these wonderful creatures.
