Elephant Reflections PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Elephant Reflections free pdf "Elephant Reflections" brings award-winning wildlife photographer Karl Ammann's gorgeous images together with a revelatory text by writer Dale Peterson to illuminate one of nature's greatest and most original works of art: the elephant. The photographs move from the purely aesthetic to the informative, depicting animals who are at once enigmatic, individual, mysterious, elusive, and iconic. In riveting prose, Peterson introduces the work of field scientists in Africa and explains their recent astonishing discoveries. He then explores the natural history and conservation status of African elephants and discusses the politics of ivory. "Elephant Reflections" is a book that could change the way the world thinks about elephants while we still have some measure of control over their fate.
