Wild at Heart [electronic resource]: The Plight of Elephants in Thailand

Elephants in Thailand have traditionally been captured in the wild and trained to work in the logging industry. However, with Thailand's ban on logging in 1989, elephants and their keepers lost a crucial source of employment and means of survival. In addition, loss of habitat is further challenging the survival of elephants. This science bulleting travels to northern Thailand to take a look at a project that may be able to help: an experiment in which elephants are returned to the forest to see whether they can form new family groups and survive on their own in the wild.

El Ocaso de los Gigantes

Loading...
They are the largest land animals on the planet. They appeared on the Earth 50 million years ago, long before humans emerged as a species, and they spread all over the world, to the very edges of the permafrost regions. They are strong, intelligent and have a powerful ability to adapt. But, more than anything, their evolutionary success can be traced to their extraordinary family ties. By following the story of three females, we learn about the biology, lifestyle and customs of elephants. And these three elephants are quite different. The first is the son of a forest elephant, a relatively unknown species, who makes his first trip to a bai and must learn, alongside his family, how to get to the salt which lies hidden underground. The second, an African bush elephant, is a weathered m [...]

Where Have All the Elephants Gone? [electronic resource]: Poaching in Tanzania and Kenya

In Tanzania it's estimated that more than 60 elephants are killed by poachers every day, the ivory from the tusks smuggled out of Dar es Salaam and sent off to markets in places like China, where a demand for ivory trinkets has exploded among the new middle class. Both Tanzania and Kenya vow to stamp out poaching, but enormous profits from the slaughter have corrupted politicians and law enforcement officials alike. This program charts the rapid decline of the African elephant as it investigates the illegal ivory trade that's doing them in. Viewers trek from Tanzania's sanctioned wildlife hunts to the seedy underworld of the poachers' black market, then go to an elephant sanctuary, where wildlife advocate Daphne Sheldrick sadly predicts the imminent extinction of these animals in the wild.

Elephants

Chris Packham explores the anatomy and physiology of the largest land animal on the planet-the elephant. Their size seems ill-suited to surviving the most arid regions of Africa, but their inner workings allow them to defy the extreme heat of the desert and find food and water in seemingly barren landscapes, while their extraordinary memory enables them to repel predators. Chris reveals how hairs on the skin help keep elephants cool, how sensors in their feet may be able to guide them towards rain, and how a unique pouch in their mouths stores water. Recent research has even discovered that elephants can distinguish between the voices of human friend and foe.
