A new – and free – 51 page ebook about elephants is available for download from iTunes. Rich in media including video the ebook aims to explain the distribution, physiology and social life of this long-lived, intelligent animal. You will see the elephant living its natural life in original photography and video clips.
Given the dire predictions about future survival, it is important that we all understand and appreciate this magnificent animal and act to save it.
Written for the non-specialist of all ages, this book aims to make a small contribution to the elephants’ conservation.
This e-book is intended for the iPad and shows the African elephant in the past, present and encourages the reader to think about the dangers the species faces. As a free e-book the author hopes it will be of general interest but also of use to charities and educational institutions. There is no intention to deal with the subject in a specialist manner but rather to show people what a marvellous animal the African elephant is and how it is unthinkable that it could become extinct.
The iPad version has integrated HD video, photo galleries and audio. All of the photography, video and audio in the e-book is the author’s own work with the exception of the photographs kindly provided by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and individually credited as such.
