Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was first published in 1992, has 353 pages, 5 parts, 34 chapters, 123 photos and 8 maps. IAIN DOUGLAS HAMILTON (70) was born on 16.8.1942. He earned his BSc in Biology and D Phil in Zoology from Oriel College, Oxford. In 1993, he started the 'Save the Elephant' organisation. He married to Oria Rocco in 1971 and has 2 daughters, SABA (seven) and MARA MOON 'Dudu' (insect). He also received his OBE in 1993. ORIA DOUGLAS HAMILTON (80) was born and brought up in Kenya. She studied in Rome and Paris and qualified as textile and fashion designer. She lives on her farm in Naivasha. She also runs the beautiful 'Elephant Watch Camp' and Safaris in Samburu, Kenya.
After studying elephants in MANYARA (Amanya-Are - a meeting place of two), Iain and Oria focused themselves on the poaching and ivory trade for the battle for the elephants. The ivory trade was banned in 1989, but the poaching of elephants and sale of ivory for the Asian market continues. In 1987, after 22 years, Iain returns to Lake Manyara NP, to measure the destruction of elephants by man. Manyara elephants had dropped from 485 to 181. There was corruption and maladministration at the highest levels.
Iain remembers his visit to TSAVO NP in 1969, when there were nearly 40,000 elephants there. Then in Kenya, the poaching increased and the corruption was found in the highest places of Government and Game department. In 1975, all adult elephants were shot in Rhuanda, the young moved to Akagera Park. A count of elephant elephants was started, first in South Africa. The culling of elephants is described in its full horror. Moving in into the Selous Game Reserve, Iain counted 80,000 elephants.

As an admirer of the great work undertaken by the Douglas-Hamilton family over the past 4 decades, i thoroughly enjoyed this book. It clearly shows how the conflict existed in many ways between the human race and the elephant population.
