About this book

Turning to the elephant's biological history, Wylie describes the three remaining species - the African Bush Elephant, the African Forest Elephant and the Asian Elephant - and the controversial international efforts for elephant conservation. With ivory poaching and human encroachment into the animal's natural habitats, Wylie argues that we face a uniquely poignant conservation crisis in which elephants and humans both consume limited natural resources unsustainably.
