Elephant Slaughter at Dzanga Bai

7/26: I took this picture of an elephant family in a small clearing right on the outskirts of Dzanga Bai.
I am posting one photo taken at Dzanga Bai a day for each of the 26 elephants killed by the 17 poachers who entered the clearing on May 7th. 
Please sign the petition to urge the C.A.R. government to do something about it: http://bit.ly/12kHOSt

8/26: It’s not often that you see an elephant sitting like that.

9/26: So wrinkly and pink! This elephant is only a few days old.

10/26: This is what it looks like when a large, lustful elephant chases after you and your child with his penis hanging out.
