Über diesen Titel


The author's travels chronicle the African elephant's struggle for survival in a world where its tusks carry a deadly value, a battle paralleling old Africa's struggle to survive in the age of modern Africa. 10,000 first printing.

From Publishers Weekly:

A former Africa correspondent for the (London) Daily Telegraph , Gavron, who has a personal interest in elephants, returned to the continent to talk to scientists, game wardens, rangers, hunters, poachers, ivory smugglers and the keepers of elephant orphanages. He presents a sharply defined account of the conflict between wildlife advocates and the needs of the increasing human population. Gavron discusses "sustainable utilization," pointing out that governments and people alike should underscore economic imperatives to justify the preservation of wilderness. He cites the Kruger National Park in South Africa as a model system: species with destructive feeding habits are strictly controlled, and the park makes a profit from hunting, tourism and culling. Other innovative schemes for wildlife can be found in Zimbabwe, he notes, where some cattle ranchers are finding greater profit in wild animals because of tourism and sport hunting. Readers who follow the elephant story will find Gavron's account even-handed and illuminating.
