Tanzanian schoolchildren living near elephants in the Tarangire-Manyara region are learning about the similarities between elephants and people, and the importance of empathy, through Wild Nature Institute's latest storybook Our Elephant Neighbours.
In addition to the ivory poaching crisis, elephants are often killed due to conflicts with farmers. The story explains why elephants raid crop fields, and provides solutions such as chili pepper fences and land planning to keep space for elephants to move.
Our Elephant Neighbours is the second in our series of books about Africa's Giants giraffes, elephants, and rhinos. These books teach about wildlife ecology, social behavior, and conservation through captivating images and engaging stories, and inspire the next generation to protect these magnificent megaherbivores for the health of their environment and economy.
