Elephants are highly intelligent animals with complex emotions, feelings, compassion and self-awareness (elephants are one of very few species to recognize themselves in a mirror!).
The gestation period of an elephant is 22 months.
That's almost 2 years, the longest pregnancy of any mammal!
But decades of poaching and conflict have since decimated African elephant populations.
In 2016, experts estimated that Africa's elephant population had dropped by 111,000 elephants in the span of a decade.
Today, there are just 415,000 elephants across Africa.
