The Big Picture

We are all profoundly affected by ecosystem disintegration and biodiversity loss.  The idea of “following ancient elephant migration routes” developed by Ian McCallum provides the opportunity to see this at ground level through  the difficult choices that elephants face in a world where their horizons are rapidly contracting.  Elephants, with their need for space, provide an inspiring and obvious example of how Nature needs large interconnected wild areas in order to continue providing the essential services and support for all life on earth – including humans!  “How much” of wild nature should be kept intact is always a question, but increasingly science confirms that “nature needs half.”   Ian McCallum’s project can bring light and awareness to this matter,” Iain Douglas-Hamilton, Founder, Save the Elephants.
