"I want to believe that we will ultimately save elephants and that we will do it because we acknowledge and accept their commonality with us. The moral progression that is gradually taking us beyond the old patterns of arrogance, prejudice, and subjugation of our fellow humans will come to include other species to an ever larger degree. I wouldn't be surprised if elephants, closely and clearly observed, help show the way." – Douglas Chadwick, The Fate of the Elephant
