THE STORY:

Susannah Rouse wrote -

I live on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in northern Kenya. Elephants roam freely throughout the north; I identify and study the elephants that come to Lewa.  Elephants live in matriarchal family groups (we name each family and individual) and have family dynamics similar to our own.

The elephants of northern Kenya now face a tremendous threat.  Despite the best efforts of conservation groups and Kenya Wildlife Services, poaching is at an all time high and elephants are being slaughtered for their tusks -- most of which are shipped to China.  If poaching continues unabated, it is entirely possible that there will be no elephant in just 10 years.  A horrific thought!

Elephant know where they are safe which is why they come to Lewa.  From time to time, we put GPS collars on elephant so that we can monitor their movement.

Please check out the article on the Elephant's in Kenya in this August's Vanity Fair.
