Thai mahouts (elephant drivers) line up their elephants during the finals of the King's Cup Elephant Polo at the Anantara Golden Triangle Resort & Spa March 29, 2009 in Chiang Rai, Thailand. The polo event aims to raise a record 1.5 million Thai baht to fund a project that provides for the welfare of elephants and their mahouts. It is estimated that Thailand's elephant population has dwindled to just over 4,000, with 2,500 domesticated and only 1,500 in the wild. By Paula Bronstein/Getty Images.
