African Elephant

Loxodonta

Description:

Oh boy, these guys where in a hurry. The whole herd was trying to hide baby from site. Protecting it from our vehicle was the main aim. Interesting how some herds in the Kruger dont mind cars, but I think because of the baby they were not interested in posing for a few pics.

Habitat:

African plains... pretty much anywhere. As you drive through the Kruger you come to an area where all the trees are completely ruined and broken and be warned... there is a lone male elephant in the vicinity.... scary yet amazing!

Be an elephant-aware consumer. Do not buy ivory or other wildlife products. Do not buy coffee that is not fair-traded or shade-grown, nor products with palm-oil. These commercial crops are grown in plantations that have decimated elephant habitats. Only buy wood products that have been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, which promotes responsible management of the world’s forests, which is the natural habitat for elephants and other wildlife.
