Beskrivning

Male African savannah elephants are not the loners they were once thought to be, they are social beings and form friendships with other males once they leave their herd and join male elephant society. Kate Evans has been researching the male elephants of Botswana since 2002, first in the Okavango Delta and since 2012 in the Makgadikigadi Pans National Park, where 98% of sightings are of male elephants. She will discuss recent findings of male sociality, and the implications of these findings for their conservation and management and their interactions with rural landscapes.
