Alison, matriarch of the AAs, isn't the strongest matriarch, and the AAs are not very cohesive as a family. We're still fond of her though, and I love this picture Cynthia took of her with her daughters.

Why Matriarchs Matter

Thu, 2011-06-09 13:27 by Vicki

Hi everyone,

Here is the new image gallery for the latest post on my IFAW blog, about why matriarchs are so important in elephant society.

I'd like to encourage people to check out the excellent work IFAW is doing for elephant conservation across Africa and Asia, and especially Azzedine Downes' recent post on the Elephant E8 meeting. As Cynthia posted on our Facebook page, ATE are very pleased to be working with our IFAW colleagues, and thankful for their generous support of our work.

Best wishes,

Vicki
