Zambia elephant population tenth of 1981 numbers: first pan-African census in over 40 years

2015-10-02 - Lusaka, Zambia

This count will be the first pan-African census in over 40 years. Researchers in 20 countries will use a standardized method of data collection to create an up-to-date picture of the status of African elephants. In 1981, Zambia alone had an estimated 160,000 elephants. Today their number is likely one tenth of that.

A mother and baby elephant were found distressed and dehydrated, sinking in deep mud at a safari park in Zambia.

Dramatic rescue of mother and baby elephant. Sinking elephants pulled from mud

2011-11-11 - Mfuwe, Zambia

Most conservationists would agree that you should not interfere with mother nature. But there are exceptions to every rule. Staff and tourists at Kapani Safari Lodge in Zambia were caught by surprise when a mother and baby elephant became trapped in mud. Saying they couldn´t just "stand by and watch them slowly die," what ensued was a dramatic rescue.

Clever trick: This elephant has learnt how to balance on his hind legs to reach food in manages the Old Mondoro Bush camp in Zambia

Extraordinary moment a wild elephant balances on two legs to reach tasty treat from tree branch

2010-09-16 - Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia

Teetering on two legs, this elephant showed he aims high when it comes to getting a good meal. The animal wasn´t daunted when faced with pulling some tasty pods from the branches of a particularly tall tree. Instead of simply shaking the tree trunk and catching his meal when it fell, he stretched himself to his full height to elegantly pluck it from the branches. It is thought this elephant, a 40-year-old male, is the only one of his herd who has learnt the extraordinary stunt.

Elephants on the loose in Zambia. Pachyderms cause havoc with crops and property but people are adapting

Tipping over the maize and sorghum granaries (three-metre-high woven reed baskets) they gorged themselves on the meagre crop. Subsistence farmer Andyson Nyendwa remembers leaving his hut and joining his neighbours in lighting fires to scare away the three house-sized beasts.
