Video – Elephant encounter
The footage beautifully demonstrates an elephant’s advanced sentiency and complex behaviour. “The video is an ideal platform to showcase this sense of wonder that elephant have, and to celebrate their capacity to connect with humans on a level not normally considered. It is a wonderful example of trust across a divide,” explains Alan.
The video, and the story surrounding it, demonstrates the necessity for us to think more meaningfully about elephant conservation. Although these remarkable animals are keystone members of an ecological circuit, they are also keystone toward a greater appreciation of wilderness conservation.
