An Asiatic elephant is driven by his mahout in Banda Aceh, several months after the tsunami of 2004. Then, these animals took a key role in searching the victims under the rubble, since they were able to access where the machines could not. Asian elephants may live more than 70 years, and the training of a mahout starts when his is a child, and a young elephant is assigned to him. They will remain together forever. “I am not giving to you an elephant, I am giving a friend, a brother and a job and a way of living. Take care of him and will take care of you”.
