Between 2007 and 2014, the African Elephant population declined by 144,000 animals, decimated by poaching. In Tanzania, the home of the iconic Serengeti National Park, the elephant population has shrunk by 60% in five years. This is the story of the men and women who are working to bring the great elephant herds back to the African savannah.
