Tribes from Ethiopia to Namibia are undergoing the challenges of globalization and climate change. The African elephant, also challenged in its struggle for survival, occupies an important place in human imagination. Through their own field accounts and gathered indigenous perspectives, Cyril and Marie Christos discuss the necessity of preserving these magnificent creatures. They will show images from their award-winning first book, “Lost Africa” as well as from their newly published book “Walking Thunder: In the Footsteps of the African Elephant.”
