A busy start to 2012

On Dec 31st we found the lovely Enid with a new male calf, a lovely end to 2011. Barbara and Betts, her newest granddaughter in the BBs. We never get tired of seeing Kilimanjaro with snow. Pascal in musth - heading straight for the Land Rover to say hi. With so much good good, the elephants have lots of energy, as Shortcake shows off. Mudwallowing is a favourite pastime during the heat of January Andrea really gets down to some serious wriggling

Hi everyone,

Well the ATE team has been kept incredibly busy during the first three weeks of 2012. The elephants have been in large groups, which keep us on our toes as we try to identify all the families and males present, as well of course as keeping track of all the new calves.

Here are some of my favourite shots of life in Amboseli over the past few weeks of the New Year.

With very best wishes for 2012, on behalf the of ATE team. We thank you for your support as we go into the 40th year of the project.

Fantastic photos, Vicki: thank you for uploading. As Enid ages, her tusks look increasingly like Echo's; it's good to see an image of her looking recovered after the profound effect Echo's death had on her in particular.
