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.

When you go to streetview in Google Maps for Samburu, Kenya you can learn about the elephants living in Samburu National Reserve. 

Pictures of the elephants in their habitat are accompanied by a paragraph explaining the circumstances of the image and telling a little more about their daily life.  This picture shows a family of elephants resting in the shade on their way to get a drink. 



With the collaboration of Save the Elephants and the Samburu National Council there are several pictures to explore, each with a story to tell about the elephants who live there.
