Updated: My Eyes On Elephants

Unnatural causes: A backhoe is used to move a dead Sumatran elephant, which was allegedly poisoned by the owner of an oil palm plantation, at Krueng Ayon village, Sampoiniet district, Aceh Jaya regency, Aceh, on Tuesday. The number of rare Sumatran elephants continues to decline due to illegal logging, conflicts with humans and hunting, among other reasons. (Antara/Irwansyah Putra). Source: The Jakarta Post

  1. Thank you for posting my baby elephant photo. This was taken on Bangtao Beach in Phuket, Thailand.http://www.phuket101.net/2011/06/bang-tao-beach.html and facebook page.

    It is a bit unfortunate that someone removed my name from the photos at one point, and they are now going around the world with no credit. If you could credit them back to me at Phuket 101 that would be most appreciated.
