'When I was born, there were a million elephants roaming Africa. By the time my daughter Charlotte was born in 2015, the numbers of Savannah elephants had crashed to just 350,000.' - HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. An elephant is killed in Africa every 15 minutes and if this continues these extraordinary animals will become extinct in less than three decades. This magnificently crafted book offers a passionate, graphic and moving picture of the African elephant today in over 250 astonishing colour images captured by Africa's most celebrated wildlife photographers. There are texts contributed by leading scientists, conservationists, filmmakers and criminologists on the ground, covering the elephant populations of South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, Kenya, Gabon, Congo, Central African Republic, Nigeria, Chad and Mali. Experts in their field cover elephant behaviour, counting and monitoring herds, poaching, habitat and general conservation issues as well as NGO funding concerns. First and foremost enjoy the beautiful photographs. Second we hope that the delegates to CITES May 2019 closed all loop holes in the ivory trade and thirdly, countries receiving and using both legal and poached ivory should strenuously police its trade and arrest syndicate leaders who drive the cruel poaching tsunami. The book is also a tribute to the many people who work for the welfare of elephants, particularly those who have fallen or risk their lives daily. There is no time to lose knowing that African elephants are well down from the 3-5 million just 100 years ago. Pull quotes throughout, headers, clear text, screenshots, stunning colour photography. 448pp, softback, 25.5cm x 21.8cm.
