Handmade elephant pooh paper spiral journal with elephant from Sri Lanka measuring approximately 5-3/4" wide x 7-3/4" tall. The Sri Lankan elephant is the darkest of the Asian elephants, and finds itself living on borrowed time. As a "megaherbivore", these animals eat a ridiculous amount of plant matter every day. Unfortunately, this trek for tons of food leads them directly into the farmer's crops, making them a pest to be eliminated. By using the cellulose fiber extracted from their pooh, paper can be made. The farmers now see the elephant as a source of income to be protected. While the species is still endangered, programs like this give the potential to live in harmony together, and the hope that the elephant will one day rebuild its population.
