        Mahouts and Elephants | EARTH A New Wild

        The name Mahout is a traditional Hindi word used to refer to riders and tamers of elephants. In Sumatra, contemporary Mahouts work with trained elephants to protect farms and villages from wild elephants, which have been known to act aggressively towards humans that have been expanding into the local forest. Use this resource to educate students on the Sumatran culture and mutualistic relationships between humans and animals.
