It's not all bad news for elephants. Under the supervision of some incredible and dedicated people the elephants in Chad have rebounded from almost total annihilation because of ruthless poaching. In 2002 the Zakouma National Park was home to 4000 elephants but by 2010 there was only about 450 of them. A staggering and terrible decline that indicated that the remaining elephants would also be lost. It is a wonderful story of hope that with focus and determination to save wildlife it can be done even when all seems lost. Animals seem to have the most extraordinary capacity to survive if we just give them a chance and help them.
