A wild Asian bull elephant (R) is herded by three domesticated counterparts during its rescue in the jungles of Kanchanaburi near the border between Thailand and Myanmar on November 12, 2002. Conservationists used their own elephants to herd the wild animal to help after it was found tied up in the jungle with a large gash in its front right leg. The injured pachyderm will be transported to a conservation park just north of Bangkok for treatment.

Richard Koyiet (L) and Daniel Leturesh from the Maasai Environmental Resource Centre stand next to an inflatable, life-size elephant in Santiago, November 11, 2002. Representatives of 160 nations will decide during the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), being held in Santiago, whether to ease a 13-year-old ban on the ivory trade. The sale was prohibited worldwide in 1989 after the continent's elephant population plummeted to 600,000 from about 1.2 million in just over a decade. Now five southern African countries say their elephant herds are blossoming again, wanting CITES to loosen their ban to allow them to sell ivory.
