KUNMING, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- A series of activities were held in the Dai Autonomous Prefecture of Xishuangbanna, southwest China's Yunnan Province, Wednesday to call for more people to protect elephants.

A group of 20 Asian elephants glutted themselves with fresh watermelons, bananas and dragon fruit on a big table at the Wild Elephant Valley scenic spot.

The World Elephant Day was set up in 2012 and falls on Aug. 12 every year. This year, a photo exhibition on Asian elephant protection, a field research camp and an Asian elephant protection exhibition were held.

Asian elephants are under first-class state protection in China. There are about 300 Asian elephants in the country, mostly in Yunnan. Enditem
