Big News for World Elephant Day
There’s a park in South Africa with 200+ elephants more than its ecosystem can handle. And there’s a park in Mozambique that, though it’s 12 times the size of the South African park, is down to just eight elephants. (The civil war there — 1977-1992 — wiped out virtually all wildlife in the country.)
MOVING GIANTS is a project that is attempting to save two ecosystems: relieve one park of too many elephants, spark life into one that desperately needs them.
The actual moving of the elephants is incredibly risky — for elephants and crew — that employs cutting-edge technology. But the cost of inaction is even higher: not to move the elephants could bring disaster to both ecosystems.
Check out Moving Giants website — which covers not only the translocation (which kicked off at the end of July), but also elephant- and conservation-oriented news from anywhere elephants call home.
