The Elephant's Secret Sense: The Hidden Life of the Wild Herds of Africa

by Caitlin O'Connell
£9.99   paperback  Oneworld Publications (2009)

While observing a group of elephants in the wild, Caitlin O'Connell, a young field scientist, saw the matriarch suddenly turn, flatten her ears and lift a leg off the ground. Several others followed suit, and soon another elephant appeared. Could elephants feel vibrations through the ground, literally 'listening' with their feet? O'Connell's ground-breaking discovery and determination to study and preserve these beautiful creatures would result in a fourteen-year struggle against a country in upheaval, tribal disputes, inhuman poachers, and a fundamentally ineffective approach to wildlife conservation.
An unforgettable journey of scientific discovery, The Elephant's Secret Sense takes you deep into the wilds of Namibia where the naturalists do their difficult work in a land threatened by expanding human populations and unstable politics. This is a story about the resilience of nature and the inspiring, astonishing, and often heart-breaking places where humans and wild animals come together.
