Asian Elephant FactsThe Asian elephant is a species unlike any other – the second largest land mammal in the world and one of the most intelligent animals on earth. Unfortunately, with less than 35,000 Asian elephants left on the planet, it is also one of the world’s most endangered species. As home to the largest sustainable elephant population in the Western Hemisphere, the Ringling Bros. Center for Elephant Conservation takes its responsibility to educate the public about these magnificent animals very seriously.
