#Day4 photo by @amivitale. Mary Lengees is one of the dedicated keepers caring for orphaned elephants at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) the first indigenous-owned and run elephant sanctuary in northern Kenya. She is one of the first indigenous Samburu women elephant keepers in all of Africa.

Traditionally in Kenya, women are married young and are meant to take care their children and homes. Although women had never been keepers before, the community has embraced the new program. Today, Reteti has a total of 5 women keepers. The community is excited to hear what these women have accomplished, and rush to them when they return home to learn news of each of the elephants in their care.

This image is from my long-term @natgeo project, “Warriors Who Once Feared Elephants Now Protect Them,” about Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of Africa. To see more of my work on this extraordinary place and learn how to become a part of the movement, follow @amivitale and @r.e.s.c.u.e

Elephant behaviour can now be determined by their vibrations, a new study released explains​.​ To capture the information, small sensors​,​ ​similar to what is used to study earthquakes were used to measure the ground-based vibrations generated by elephants.​ T​his research indicate​s​ that these vibrations are detectable beyond what is audible, suggesting that elephants can use ground-transmitted information to know the whereabouts of the rest of the herd, even over several kilometres.​ ​Scientists and conservationists are increasingly worried about the effects of noise caused by humans. By preserving wild landscapes, elephants can continue to detect the signal above the noise. ​Research by: @savetheelephants & @oxford_uni #elephants #science #research #vibrations #elephantbehaviour #oxforduniversity #saveelephants

A group of big-game hunters, taxidermists and a national hunting-conservation organization is challenging in New Jersey federal district court a state law that bars residents from importing lion, leopard, rhino and elephant "trophies."
.
The suit contends the New Jersey legislature ignored "comprehensive regulations" and the Fish and Wildlife Service's use of "enhancement permits as a conservation incentive." Lawmakers, according to the suit, claimed "no special expertise in assessing the benefits of sustainable use."
The New Jersey law says "no person shall possess, transport, import, export, process, sell or offer for sale, or ship, and no common or contract carrier shall knowingly transport or receive for shipment any part or product of: any specified African species" that includes the African elephant, leopard, lion, and black and white rhinoceros.
.
Nearly identical bans apply under S978 to the parts or products of priority species, which are defined to include the African elephant, leopard, lion, and black and white rhino.
.
The state laws, according to the suit, were intended to make licensed, regulated hunting of Big Four game more difficult and less attractive to New Jersey residents by preventing them from bringing home a traditional "trophy." They fail to exempt federally authorized or permitted imports of the Big Four intended to remain in the state, the complaint said. A New Jersey resident with a valid Fish and Wildlife Service import permit, for example, cannot continue to possess, import, or transport the permitted trophy in the state.
.
The suit argues that the New Jersey laws "undercut the public policy of sustainable use, which is intended to generate operating revenue for wildlife authorities to fund anti-poaching, wildlife recovery, and wildlife management; to incentivize local people to tolerate or value listed species; and to preserve habitat, among other things."

Their landscape of skin will gather around her bones to mourn. The dead elephant’s eye—lost in folds of time—looks man in the face but man is blind. Then the whole family of elephants from babies to grandmothers seek the place where the headless body of their sister lies. They nudge her, sniff her and then take her life away with them. I write to try to see...TUNZA! CONSERVE!

From our founder, Lek Chailert:
Some of you have asked us about Navann, and why he does not stay with the herd.
His separation was initiated some time ago. Almost two years ago we lost a beautiful soul named Hansa. This was our introduction to the terrifying virus (EEHV) that can cull the young from any population. Several of our babies contracted the virus after the arrival of the 19 rescued elephants now known as KhamLa's herd. We were distraught at the possibilities of losing our young. We made it through, by medical diligence and great expense.
Navaan was one of our babies who got so sick that we thought that we had lost him.
Our vets are still alert to all of our young, even after things have settled and the tension relieved. We take precautions. The young are still monitored. We have new youthful arrivals since that stressful time. It is our duty to protect them. Navaan was isolated, with his favorite nanny, for his best interest and that of others. Navann has become healthy and strong again. We guard against potentials. Navann remains in his territory with his favorite nanny, Buakham, across the river, where mother and nanny Jokia spend time with him all day. He has a big space with many enrichments. Navaan is very independent. He loves to play, and is often too rough, using his tusks to intimidate. Both mother and nanny have been injured. With an abundance of youthful energy we provide activities for him to exercise . Alert for his well-being, we will ensure that the boy will be safe until he is beyond the age of risk for EEHV.
Who could not love this precocious boy ?!!!

Back in 1969 Gorongosa National Park was home to some 2200 elephants. Between 1977 and 1992 civil conflict in the country took the lives of most of these individuals. Elephant meat was used to feed soldiers and ivory was sold for the purchase of arms and ammunition. By the time peace was restored it was estimated that less than 200 individuals remained alive. 🐘

Thanks to intervention by the Mozambican Government and @gorongosapark, we estimate there to be over 800 elephants in Gorongosa today, and their numbers are gradually increasing. 🐘
