Tarangire National Park: An Abundance of Elephants
Luckily for me, elephants are prominent in Tarangire National Park, in fact I saw some almost every day. This abundance, though, gave me a false sense of hope for them. The numbers of elephants in Tarangire do not give an accurate representation of the abundance in all of Africa. Due to poaching the elephant population is experiencing a decline. Luckily, though, many have found sanctuary in Tarangire, which is not fenced in. Anti-poaching programs and environmental awareness programs are helping the elephants, and all of Africa's abundant wildlife, to get the protection they deserve.
