Elephants Are Wearing Sweaters in North India And Here’s Why

Indian conservationist group Wildlife SOS has come up with an innovative solution to help elephants cope with northern Uttar Pradesh's chilly winters – by knitting jumbo jumpers for them. The NGO is working with village women to knit the giant jumpers for theelephants housed at its local conservation centre in the holy Hindutown of Mathura. Some of the jumpers are knitted by women in far flung towns and brought to the centre for the final fit outs.

Little BIG elephant attack! from Joakim Odelberg on Vimeo.

I was on a mission for WWF with Dr Allan Carlson, (one of the foremost experts in african animals), in Tanzania and Kenya to document the horrific poaching practices on elephants and rhinos. Early one morning on our way to the bush we were attacked by this little BIG baby elephant and I completely fell in love. It's an encounter I'll never forget and I would just like to share a happy moment in all this darkness.
