The Natural World

on BBC Two England

The Elephant Challenge Narrated by lain Guest Elephants have always inspired awe and affection. Once described as a sea of elephant dotted with islands of people, the African continent is no longer a vast wilderness sanctuary for these vanishing giants.
Today, marooned on ever-shrinking islands, elephants are surrounded by people.
Space is at a premium. Across the continent, man and beast compete for living space. So what does the future hold for the elephant? Can they be afforded the protection and room they need if they are to continue to share the land they once ruled?
