Elephants are one of the most amazing animals in the world. It's upsetting to realize they are one of many species that are in danger of extinction. To be honest that makes me extremely sad. To anyone interested on this topic I recommend the WWF app where you can learn more about animals and you can contribute to the cause. They give you different facts about each animal. And while I was reading about elephants, they mention what farmers do to protect their crops and protect the animals in the region. The word I didn't understand was smearing. It means o spread or daub on or over something. I'm glad that farmers are aware of this problem and make their best to keep the elephants safe.
