Elephants get lost (P6)

Protecting the animals

   During their long journey, the 15 elephants have already damaged (破坏) 561,333 square meters of crops and caused economic losses (经济损失) of nearly 6.8 million yuan. But since they enjoy Class-A protection in China, the same as the giant panda, we need to protect them.

   To ensure the safety of both humans and the elephants, people have fed them tons of food to guide them away from towns and cities. Seventy-six police cars and trucks and nine drones (无人机) have been used to keep an eye on the elephants. Scientists also suggest that we should use harmless fences (栅栏) to guide them on their way home.     

1. Can you name any other animals that are under class-A protection in China?

Panda, elephant, Siberian Tiger(东北虎)

2. What was the total amount of economic losses that were cause by the elephants?

Nearly 6.8 million yuan.

3. What did people do to guide elephants away from towns and cities

They fed them.

4. 翻译划线句子:

七十六名警车、卡车和九个无人机被用来监视大象。

Pretend that you are an elephant and write a dialogue with your partners about your migration.
