Unexpectedly large herd of Elephants sighted in Borno State, Nigeria.

A large herd comprising around 250 African Bush Elephants, Loxodonta africana, has been spotted close to the town of Rann in Borno State, northeastern Nigeria. The sighting was made from a helicopter operated by the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service that was delivering supplies in the area on 19 December 2019. Northeastern Nigeria was known to be home to several hundred Elephants until about ten years ago, when Boko Haram insurgents set up camps in the Sambisa Forest Game Reserve, a key environment and part of the annual migration route of the Elephants. In the decade since that time the area has been a subjected to repeated fighting between the insurgents and the Nigerian military, including aerial bombardments and extensive use of artillery, things generally thought to be adverse to Elephant survival. However the discovery of a large Elephant herd in Borno suggests that Elephants have not just survived in the area but flourished, with the discovery roughly doubling the known Elephant population of Nigeria, according to Tunde Marokinyo of Africa Nature Investors.

Elephants are considered to be threatened across Africa, due to a combination of hunting, principally for the value of their tusks, and habitat loss, with the population across the continent thought to have dropped from 3-5 million in 1900 to about 415 000 today, and about 50% of Elephant-suitable land having disappeared since 1970. The population of Elephants in Nigeria has not been surveyed properly in the last decade, due to the running civil war in the area, but is thought to have been subjected to heavy poaching, based upon seizures of ivory in other countries that is thought to have originated in Nigeria. 

On Tuesday 24 December authorities in Vietnam revealed that they had confiscated 330 kg of ivory being smuggled in three shipping containers from Nigeria, along with 1700 kg of Pangolin scales, another lucrative, but illegal, wildlife product.

  2. Just wanted to call out Paul for his fantastic service through my home buying process - from identifying the best rate through to obtaining approval and settlement. This was my first home purchase and I think it's fair to say that it would have been significantly more challenging without his help. Paul was on top of everything that needed to be done - going the extra bit in dealing with the bank and conveyance to ensure that the whole process was concluded smoothly. The best part was that Paul was always there to answer any questions and provide support, making life much simpler. Highly recommended!
