This project was conceived several years ago and was inspired by a trip to Mozambique’s Zambezi Delta. Here, elephants have made an extraordinary, post-war comeback. Mark Haldane has worked hard since the mid-90s, conducting research, providing protection, and doing excellent community work. Today, thousands of elephant can be found throughout this 4.5 million acre ecosystem, and they feel quite safe when out in the giant Papyrus Swamps. Long live the Elephants!
