All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.

Elephant in Australia?

Yes!!!
Because in my opinion, it can be really good for pest (invasive plant species) control and fertilizing the land.

This is the story: http://www.smh.com.au/environment/conservation/expert-advises-big-fix-for-jumbosized-problem-20120202-1qtzb.html

Elephant in Australia will be for good. They will certainly eat grass and small plants but I doubt they'd eat the gum trees with too much oil. Researchers can feed them different types of plant species and just find out. This is about a grand plan - saving Australia or Australian rare species. There should be some funding for the research and quite simple enough to be done within a month. Just get a few elephants and give them variety of plants and grasses and just find out.

 They will pursue for easy food (grass) rather than forcing the trees down - unless very desirably tasty, or no easy meal found. Water might be a problem for them if water holes are rare and that could be a problem for the native animals too.

Generally elephants are peaceful herd (social) animals. They are smart and kind - except for the bulls when being threatened or during their musth.

Here in Australia, you can try an old mowing strategy - using goats or sheep. Now use elephants and employ some mahouts from India, Burma and Thailand. For the mission, either Asian elephants or African elephants or both will be fine.

Well, I'm not suggesting wild elephants to be released unattended by the experts. In this case, about a thousand elephants would be just fine. Just put the elephants in missions for pest control and they will look after themselves. Place them in different locations in several herds and everything would be fine...
