Elephant videos are often considered “trendy” or “cool”, but according to the creators, they’re also very real.
The BBC’s Elephant Voices series examines the elephant’s unique story, from its origins to its current status as a symbol of conservation.
“There’s a lot of misconceptions around elephants and the world’s biggest mammals,” says the elephant video artist and director.
The BBC is working with a team of experts in elephant and wildlife conservation to develop an elephant and elephant related documentary. “
The reason people love to watch them is because it shows people how they live their lives, how they do things and it’s an experience that’s totally new for them.”

The series is called The Elephant, and is currently available to stream on the BBC iPlayer and on YouTube.
The elephant video has a lot going for it.
The producers say they wanted to highlight the elephant as a powerful symbol of hope and unity, with its “unconditional love” and “unique personality”.
“The elephant has always been a symbol for peace, and to make it a symbol that’s seen as something of beauty is a really powerful message,” says Mr Rau.
“So when you have a video where you can see the elephant from a distance, that’s really empowering.”
‘It’s an incredible feeling’ It’s hard to see elephants without seeing their suffering, said Mr Raus.
Mr Rauer believes the elephant and its conservation are at a tipping point, as the world has lost track of its wildlife. “
We have no idea how much poaching takes place around the world, so the fact that you can watch this elephant being shot by an elephant poacher is incredible.”

“It’s the ultimate conservation story and we can see that our species is in danger and our ability to survive and thrive is in jeopardy,” he said.
The Elephant’s story is part of a larger global conversation about the elephant, as global demand for ivory is expected to reach $8 billion in 2019, according to WWF.
But while many of the world s wildlife is being killed, conservationists say the biggest threats to elephants are being driven by the demand for elephant products, which is fuelling poaching and illegal trading.
“These things are happening to elephants and other animals all over the world.
It’s an amazing feeling to see these animals from afar, and you’re just really inspired by them,” Mr Raur said.
“I feel like the elephant is a symbol we can all be proud of, and a great example of what the future holds.”
