• Elephants Struggle to Survive in Drought-Stricken Mali

    For thousands of years, Mali's Lake Banzena, on the edge of the Sahara desert, has been home to Africa's most northerly elephant herd. And every year Mali desert elephants have adapted to drought conditions by walking about 1,000 km in a circular pattern, following rains in Mali and neighboring Burkina Faso. But the most severe drought conditions in a quarter century have dried up Banzena, one of the central water points on the elephants' migration cycle. By late May this year, the lake shrank to just a few pools of muddy water. Thousands of cattle, sheep and goats owned by nomadic Tuareg herdsmen all descend to the lake basin looking for water. The normal peaceful coexistence between the elephants and herdsmen is starting to break down.  And it's giving way to conflict...

    The Mali elephant herd has between 550 and 700 individuals and, the majority of the population is older with over 50% of the herd considered adults. Studies show high fertility but also high mortality in newborns and young elephants. Newborns and young are especially susceptible to environmental stresses, such as drought and increased human presence.

In a statement released by the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Sheldrick said, "The most important thing in [an elephant's] life [are] friends and family, as it is for us humans." "To separate an elephant from others for life is immeasurably cruel and counter-productive to both the emotional and social well-being of the animal, with possible adverse physical damage as well," she added.

For thousands of years, Mali's Lake Banzena, on the edge of the Sahara desert, has been home to Africa's most northerly elephant herd. And every year Mali desert elephants have adapted to drought conditions by walking about 1,000 km in a circular pattern, following rains in Mali and neighboring Burkina Faso. But the most severe drought conditions in a quarter century have dried up Banzena, one of the central water points on the elephants' migration cycle. By late May this year, the lake shrank to just a few pools of muddy water. Thousands of cattle, sheep and goats owned by nomadic Tuareg herdsmen all descend to the lake basin looking for water. The normal peaceful coexistence between the elephants and herdsmen is starting to break down.  And it's giving way to conflict over access to water. [Aboubar Ag Gerhir, Tuareg Herder]: "Usually we don't have any problems with the elephants, but with the drought the situation becomes more difficult, because all animals are thirsty, they come together at the same water pond and often the elephants chase the other animals." Wildlife experts say the elephants' migrating pattern has become more erratic since the drought has started to hit the herd, as the young elephants started to die. Older elephants are able to get on their knees and reach inside deeper water holes with their trunks. [El Mehdi Doumbia, Forestry Officer]: "This year there's no water. Most of the time elephants drank the stale water, mud really." The rainy season, which usually starts at the beginning of June, should bring some relief. [Jake Wall, Researcher, Save the Elephants]:English "Luckily last night we received a rain shower about 40-60 kilometers south of here and the elephants now left the lake, because there is nothing, and they've headed south and hopefully will find water, but it may be only a few days before they return." Groups including the NGO Save the Elephants have installed water pumps, along with some concrete drinking troughs, in an effort save the herd. But as temperatures in the region seem to heat up and marginal conditions like these grow intolerable, even venerable great beasts like the elephant could be on the way out.

In the north of Kenya, stands the Shaba reserve, a place of biological endemisms; a haven for wildlife at the edge of a blazing desert. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ Documentary "Shaba, the Land of God and the Devil" ▶ http://pdoc.es/SWildLife It is the so-called Northern Frontier District, the geographical limit beyond which reign the laws of life in the wild. Here, man is an intruder and survival is determined by the water, the wind and the sun. Shaba is a place of extremes, constantly putting animals life to the test. Severe droughts alternate with tremendous floods, turning the savannah into a hell which generates paradises; a land of contrasts where the harshest rigours give rise to the most beautiful works of nature. The Danish writer Karen Blixen wrote: “Africa teaches you this: that God and the devil are one and the same”. And in the Kenya that she loved and immortalised in her novel Out of Africa no other region demonstrates this to quite the same extent as Shaba. In a land where life seems impossible, Shaba guards the treasure of its exclusive biodiversity in a paradox without precedent. Wind, sun and dust; for three years, not a single drop of rain has fallen on the cracked lands of the Northern Frontier District. The natives call this region Nyica, the wild, desolate region. But even in this time of prolonged drought life clings on in Shaba. In the cool of night, the herbivores appear in search of the drops of dew and the last shoots softened by the humidity. But thrice now the rainy season has failed to appear and vegetation is virtually non-existent. The darkness also tempts the carnivores out of their hiding places. As a demonstration of its split personality, at night a truce for the animals is declared in the unbearable drought of Shaba. The clear skies are lit with millions of stars stretching to infinity and a serene beauty engulfs the tortured savannah, turning it for a moment into a place of dreams, a mirage in the heart of the kingdom of thorns. ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs ▶NATURE DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/PlNature ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc

The end of guinea worm disease is within reach, proclaims the carter center. Inside the body the larvae migrate through the intestinal wall and into the body tissue where they grow into adult worms.

It is so painful infected people call it the fiery serpent. There is no vaccine to treat or prevent the disease, only behavioral modification and of course available clean water or the use of a filter if none is available. Once the worm begins to emerge through the skin, to extract it, someone begins to wrap it around a stick, a painful process that can take hours to months. The disease is usually not fatal, but a secondary infection or tetanus that is life threatening can occur around the wound if not treated with antibiotic ointments. At one time 20 nations in Asia and Africa were affected, but now the disease only affects humans in four countries in Africa with over 1,000 cases reported in the south Sudan Mali, Ethiopia and chad for the year 2011.

From the EYE of the Desert, to the most unique glass fragments from nowhere, these are 12 STRANGE Things Found in the Sahara Desert ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Gerboise Bleue Test Site France became the fourth nuclear powered nation after the USA, USSR and Great Britain. They were eager to test out their destruction device and decided to launch their first test in the Algerian Saharan Desert in 1960’s, with a bomb called the Gerboise bleue, near the Berber county of Reggane. We found the coordinates of the launch testing site and as we took a closer look to try to see the crater google earth, something appears to be cut and pasted of the area where it took place You can still see some of the discoloration of the sand from the original black and white photo that you see here.It you get somewhere close to the testing site by foot, you might come across a sighn like this, warning those who dare venture any further. The huge cloud of sand that was released from the atom bomb apparently spread radioactivity into neighboring countries and even into the south of France. Could the extreme heat from the blast, have created something similar to the Libyan desert glass? 6. Ghadames Located a few hundred miles from mediterranean sea, Ghadames is nicknamed, the pearl of the desert because of its pearl white apartment buildings.It was basically an abandoned city in the Sahara Desert for a long period of time when its source of water dried up. Located in the country of Libya. Ghadames was recently listed as a world heritage site and its origins date back to the 4th millennium BC. After miles and miles of endless desert, people must be thinking they’re seeing a mirage when they come across the revived date orchards. The Romans used it to stor e supplies and helped them secure north africa as part of their empire. Temperatures in this area have reached as high as 131 degrees fahrenheit. New housing was designed around the old city that can put up with the heat and it’s now home to about 10,000 residents. 5. Acacus Mountains This mountain range in the center of the Sahara, forms between the countries of Libya and Algeria. It’s here where you’ll find a large variation of strange dune and rock formations like the Rock arch in Tadrart. This is also where you would find the ancient rock art of the Sahara, or what’s left of it. The paintings depicted giraffes, elephants, ostriches and horses and date back to 12,000 BC. The UNESCO State of Conservation reported a large about of vandalism with sledge hammers that appeared to intentionally inflicted to damage the paintings and many of them were looted. This happened when the country was under a little bit of political chaos. 4. The Saharan Horned Viper By looking at photos, many might come to the conclusion the the Sahara is a lifeless wasteland. But this certainly isn’t the case and it’s home to a unique and somewhat creepy wildlife ecosystem. Possibly the most intimidating looking snake makes itself home in Northern Africa and it has horns coming out of its head, almost like the devil himself. These horns as actually protect their eyes while they’re slithering through the Sahara sands and are very aggressive. This nocturnal, carnivorous creatures feasts on things like rodents, birds and lizards. 3. Desert Breath What could this thing possibly be? A UFO landing site? No it’s actually an art installation in Eastern Egypt. The winds of the Sahara have somewhat eroded the spiral but that’s to be somewhat expected after 10 years. This was created by a group of Greek artists and it covers a space of about 25 acres. Roughly 8000 cubic meters of sand was dug out and there used to be a body of water 98 feet deep in the center but this quickly evaporated. The artists stated that it was meant to represent the infinity of the desert. Today it sort of represents a passage of time. 2. The City of Timbuktu Located on the southern edge of the Sahara in the country of Mali, is where you’ll find the historical city of Timbuktu. It’s used in expressions, describing a really far away place but it does actually exist! Between the 12th and 14 century, this city thrived and was extremely wealthy from trading salt and ivory. This commodity was traded by large caravans of camels and it brought an enormous amount of wealth to the Malian Empire. They constructed immense fortifications around the city with a unique architecture that’s not still commonly seen today. 1.The Eye of the Sahara Hmm ok, i was told there was some kind of eye looking formation somewhere around here on google maps… Where is it? Oh! There it is! American Eye is presenting you the Saharan Eye, which is located in the country or Mauritania! This massive geological structure is in the shape of a nearly perfect circle with a 25 mile diameter! It’s so big, that Nasa used to use it as a reference point when they entered space! There are many theories on how it formed.

MANILA, Philippines -- A world-renowned elephant rehabilitator has joined the growing list of concerned individuals urging the transfer of an elderly elephant in the Manila Zoo to a sanctuary in Thailand. Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick, head of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, said Mali should be allowed to live with other elephants to "heal her lonely soul." In a statement released by the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Sheldrick said, "The most important thing in [an elephant's] life [are] friends and family, as it is for us humans." "To separate an elephant from others for life is immeasurably cruel and counter-productive to both the emotional and social well-being of the animal, with possible adverse physical damage as well," she added. "I therefore appeal, on behalf of Elephant Mali, who cannot speak for herself, to afford her access to others, and in so doing heal her lonely soul." Sheldrick has been involved with elephants for the past 58 years. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, named after her late husband, has rehabilitated more than 150 orphaned elephants. A sanctuary in Thailand has already agreed to accept Mali, who is suffering from foot ailments, loneliness, boredom and isolation in the Manila Zoo, according to PETA. Aside from Sheldrick, some of the individuals and groups who have expressed their support to the call to release Mali include wildlife conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall, Nobel Prize-winning author J.M. Coetzee, veterinarian Dr. Henry Melvyn Richardson, film legend Brigitte Bardot, former First Lady Imelda Marcos, singer-activist Morrissey, some members of Congress, and the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.

Rory Young and Nigel Kuhn have just been through a Jihadist stronghold in a fast surprise movement before forces could be deployed against the new mixed army/ ranger anti poaching brigade that they are training. Saving the last desert elephants of the Sahara means educating and sensitising community, invaluable work spearheaded by the WILD Foundation and The International Conservation Fund of Canada, whilst order is restored and poachers/traffickers/bandits/terrorists are dealt with. This is the first in a series of short films which will be uploaded over the next three weeks from the frontline.
