Description: Elephants are Africa’s gardeners. They uproot bushes, push over small trees and dig up soil. Such behaviour, rather than being destructive, is architectural, controlling bush overgrowth.

Story from behind the lens: With the rise in human population in the protected reserves, there has been a rise in human- elephant conflict. This is threatening the elephants' movement, making them move into the forested area where they cause more destruction to the environment.
