Kunstnerens egen kommentar

In Amboseli, the big bull elephants tend to hang out together and often this will be near the rangers’ headquarters on the edge of the park. It is an insight into just how smart elephants are - after all they have this vast ecosystem in which to roam and yet they are happiest near the rangers and this despite the fact that no elephant has been poached in Amboseli for over five years.

I try and always get “off road” permits in Amboseli as it gives me access to opportunities like this. It is my favourite national park in Kenya, but inside the park the road system is limiting. It makes such a difference to a photograph like this to have the large tusks as part of the narrative.

If I had an issue with some conservationists (not easy as their hearts are in the right place), it would be that their delivery of information is skewed to ramming home metadata that shocks on the downside. In making the point that the planet is troubled and wildlife numbers are under pressure, the de facto routine is to give current numbers which offer a tale of woe.

The danger of this is that it suggests that the huge sums of money raised by conservation NGOs over the last 10 years have had no impact at all. If this was the case, why would good new money follow on the heels of good old money that has seemingly made no difference at all to stem the decline in lion, elephant and rhino numbers? We should try to be more balanced in reporting our news from the front line.

Amboseli, Tsavo to the east and Lewa to the north are the poster children of conversation efforts in Kenya. In all three cases poaching has been virtually eradicated and the common link has been the investment of money through conservation NGOs. We must talk more about these successes.
