Face to Face with Elephants by Dereck Joubert, Beverly Joubert

Derek and Beverly Joubert take you deep into the heart of Africa as they come face to face with the fascinating world of elephants. The Jouberts have spent the last 25 years living in the bush. They've gotten up close and personal with elephants of all sizes, seen their complex social structure of family and friends, and witnessed first-hand the deep emotions they possess.You'll find out that elephants can be compassionate - adopting the lost elephant baby separated from its family. You'll also laugh as the elephants' curiousity and playfulness sometimes takes them too far - as when the elephant sticks its trunk in their Land Rover, nosing around for some water. You'll learn about the many threats the elephants face. The Joubert have also seen them under attack - both by their natural enemy, the lion, and by mankind, as they continue to be hunted and driven to smaller parcels of land by loss of habitat. As with each Face to Face book, helpful and accessible back matter, especially designed for report writers, includes a facts-at-a-glance section, a conservation feature, a science inquiry exercise, a glossary, an index, and how to find out more.
