There was a time when the African elephant roamed the entire continent at will and was able to ive out its long life in harmony with its environment. The bull elephants who became known as great tuskers, the hundred pounders of colonial times, were plentiful. But throughout the ages man has relentlessly hunted these majestic beasts for their ivory and this, combined with the loss of its habitat to ever-increasing human populations, brought the African elephant to the brink of extinction in many parts of the continent.
In the twenty-first century a great tusker will only be found in a conservation area, and it will be a rare and unforgettable sighting.
