Vote Elephant

ITV's new programme 'Extinct' is about voting for one of eight different kinds of animal which might become extinct. Half the money raised goes to the winning animal, and the rest is split between the other seven. Today's programme was about polar bear, which is threatened by global warming, and involved Anneka Rice flying round in a helicopter with people firing darts at polar bears to tranquilise them (I didn't quite understand how this helped save the polar bear) and about panda.

The important thing, though, is that one of the eight animals is the Asian Elephant. There are 30,000 elephants left in Asia, and WWF and their friends are doing work to help protect elephants from problems of deforestation and conflict with people.
