Journeys Worldwide has a passion for Elephants and want to ensure their survival. There are currently about 400,000 to 500,000 elephants in the wild in Africa and 20,000 to 40,000 in the wild in Asia.
African elephants are listed as Vulnerable and Asian elephants as Endangered.
Rangers and community-based operations are on the frontlines of the fight against wildlife crime. One of the biggest threats to elephants and indeed wildlife in general, is habitat loss. Conflict with humans in neighbouring communities, where residents are often of extremely poor backgrounds, is a desperate issue many populations face. Only if these communities of people see a financial value in having elephants survive, will their long term future be secure.
Fun Facts About Elephants
- The ears of an African Elephants can reach up to 5 feet long and account for about 10 % of their body surface area. When flapped, they act as big radiators, cooling the blood that runs close to the surface behind their ears.
- Elephants are known for their incredible memory. Matriarchs will remember the trails and watering holes and how to navigate the seasons, all knowledge handed down by their ancestors for generations, and knowledge so vital for their survival. Bull elephants will leave the herds (often involuntarily) in their mid-teens and will often join an older bull to learn the extended ranges of the males.
- Elephants will walk at the pace of their slowest member, with infants surrounded by nurturing members of the herd, and their young babies are always protected from the elements, like the wind, the rain and the sun.
