Human-Elephant Conflict Rises

Elephants are fascinating mammals, and the more we learn about them, the more human-like they seem. This, however, may be driving further conflict between species in areas where the two conflict, with increasingly dire results for the remaining wild elephant populations around the world. Some efforts have been made to help repair elephant social networks, interestingly using similar techniques as in war-torn human settlements, with some degree of success. Are we perhaps more similar to these massive and majestic animals than previously thought?
