Africa’s First Elephant Underpass
Elephants this month began crossing through Africa’s first dedicated elephant underpass in Kenya. It’s a new solution to the increasing problem of animal-human conflict in Africa.
The tunnel, which cost £130,000 to build, is designed to link two groups of the beasts previously separated by a busy motorway. The underpass, built using donations, reconnects wilderness areas on Mount Kenya’s highlands and the lower forests and plains — linking 2,000 elephants with 5,000 more below. (Source)
