Elephants are the earth’s gardeners sustaining Africa’s diverse habitats. Elephants are responsible for seed dispersal, pushing down trees, seal water holes so water holds longer during the dry season, and recycling nutrients that are locked in wood for other wildlife.
Wild elephants are keystone species and crucial to the existence of other species. These colossal megafauna create and maintain their own ecosystems.
Celebrated for their intelligent social structure, and much like humans, elephants express love, joy, anger, grief, and compassion. The matriarchal society make them a wonder to behold in their wild habitat.
From their trunk with 40,000 dextrous muscles to their oversized ears that flap away heat, elephant’s ivory tusks are designed to defend, and ultimately the cause of their ruin.
