Synopsis: Ten years before this book was written, poaching of elephants was rampant in much of Africa. As many as three hundred elephants a day were being slaughtered for their tusks. When the major trading nations of the world agreed to end the ivory trade, the price of ivory plummeted, and poaching ground to a halt. Rarely has such a massive threat to a species' survival evaporated so quickly once the proper action has been taken The ivory ban was a significant victory, but the cause of the elephant has not yet been won. Human encroachment on elephant habitat continues to threaten the elephant's survival. This beautifully illustrated and important book, featuring essays by world-renowned writers and scientists, captures the splendor of the elephant and underscores the urgent need for its protection. With more than 100 color photographs by wildlife photographer Brian Beck, it is a celebration of a magnificent animal, a warning of its possible destruction, and a plea for its preservation.
