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. The WILD Foundation and International Conservation Fund of Canada are working with local communities to protect this unique herd of elephants. Learn more at www.wild.org
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...

Mali, das siebtgrößte Land auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent, ist ein Land der Nomaden, geprägt von Sand, Salz und endloser Weite. Es beeindruckt durch seine landschaftliche Vielfalt, die von subtropischen Regionen des Niger-Flusstals im Süden bis zur Wüstenregion der Sahara im Norden reicht. Neben der Sahara gibt es an den Niger-Ufern auch Gebiete, in denen einige der ältesten afrikanischen Ethnien leben. Der amerikanische NaturfotografArt Wolfe folgt dem Flusslauf bis in den Süden von Mali, zu den versteckten Dörfern der Dogon. Im Land der Dogon liegt das rötlich schimmernde Bandiagara-Felsmassiv.
