Elephants are severely threatened through poaching and habitat loss. Their greatest threat is people who wish to show their status by owning trinkets carved from their tusks.

Addo Elephant Park has been a conservation success story in the ongoing battle to protect these magnificent animals and their habitat. This story, told by Anna Whitehouse, is the topic of our talk on 18 April at 17h30.

Dr Anna Whitehouse and her husband Dr Chris Whitehouse own Phillipskop Mountain Reserve outside Stanford. Anna developed a passion for elephants at the age of 7. After graduating from university in the UK, she moved to South Africa in 1996 to carry out research on the Addo elephants. In 2001 she was awarded her PhD in elephant conservation.
