Male Elephant (Loxodonta africana), Krüger National Park, South Africa

Once ranging across most of Africa the Elephant population has declined dramatically across the continent. In South Africa the Addo Elephant and Kruger National Park protect large herds. Due to rigorous conservation measures the Elephant population in South Africa has grown from a estimated 120 in 1920 in 4 locations, to 10 000 at 40 locations to date. Today poaching becomes an increasing issue of environmental crime.
