Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing peak on earth, rarely seen without clouds obscuring its summit. The elephant, another giant of Africa, once roamed the entire continent, migrating thousands of miles and requiring immense resources to survive. The herds’ travels shaped ecosystems and resulted in a diverse tapestry of abundant habitats. With the advance of modern man, much of the elephant’s territory has been lost, resulting in the decline of the species. Today, Kilimanjaro looks down upon a landscape that shifts from wilderness to farmland. What was a vast habitat has become isolated; islands in a sea of humanity.
