Synopsis: A close-up look at the world of the African elephant covers the illegal ivory trade, the elphant's life cycle and behavior, and ways to protect elephants
From Library Journal:
This book's subtitle carries an imperative message: the ivory ban is up for reconsideration in 1992, and the elephant is not yet safe from possible extinction. Nontechnical and educational chapters by five experts and Richard Leakey's introduction provide excellent information on the ivory trade and ban as well as a fascinating discussion of elephant life history and ecology. Because the authors include their personal thoughts and perspective, their far-reaching text is compelling and moving. The photographs are splendid, technically and emotionally. Also featured is a list of elephant-related conservation programs. While the photographs in Boyd Norton's The African Elephant: Last Days of Eden ( LJ 11/1/91) are also excellent, his text is less complete, confined mainly to one perspective and one locale, East Africa. This is highly recommended for all collections.
