Whether you're Africa-bound or a dedicated animal-lover, add this soon-to-be-released book to your must-read list. Well-known African environmentalist and former co-founder of Wilderness Safaris and Great Plains Conservation Colin Bell has just signed off on a new book revealing the future of elephants in the wild. Also with a foreward written by HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, The Last Elephants is set to be a truly captivating read.
Aimed at educating readers on the reality of Africa's wild elephant population, the book's chapters have each been written by different elephant experts from across the continent. It's an incredibly timely read, with numbers tragically dwindling – a subject that Prince William stresses in his foreward. "When I was born, there were a million elephants roaming Africa," says His Royal Highness. "By the time my daughter Charlotte was born in 2015, the numbers of savannah elephants had crashed to just 350,000. At the current pace of illegal poaching, when Charlotte turns twenty-five the African elephant could be gone from the wild."
The Last of the Elephants will be launched in March, 2019. Printing numbers will be limited, so order today to get your own copy. For more information or to order your own copy, visit the Africareps website here and get in contact.
