New SA book out now
The last Elephants by DON PINNOCK AND COLIN BELL is out now.
The Africa-wide Great Elephant Census report of 2016 produced shocking findings: a decimated elephant population whose numbers were continuing to plummet. Today, an elephant is killed on average every 15 to 20 minutes. These intelligent and extraordinary creatures are a species in crisis.
Through the eyes of over 40 writers – researchers, conservationists, poets, activists and rangers – this book tells the story of the continent’s elephants and the dangers they face. The narratives are supported by images selected from among Africa’s finest wildlife photographers. The Foreword is written by HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. Published by Penguin Random House.
