Friends may be essential for the stress management of orphaned elephants

A new study from Colorado State University shows that having friends can help protect orphaned elephants from stress.

In the past, it’s been common for zoos to house animals without considering their natural social structures. The lack of companionship makes animals prone to weight loss and high levels of cortisol, a hormone related to stress.

Previous studies have found that animals with friends are less likely to show signs of stress. The new study found that mahouts (caretakers) at an elephant rescue facility in Sri Lanka were able to significantly reduce levels of cortisol in orphaned elephants by pairing them with a group living wild on the island who could serve as buddies or “mentors.
