'Lifeline 3' - The Last Elephant

'An idea that came to me in Tanzania two years ago and has been brewing in my head ever since.

The closest creature genetically to the elephant is the hyrax. Somewhat of a contrast in every way. They will be our closest remaining link to the elephant, if the present poaching crisis continues and we wipe elephants out of Africa'      Julie Askew
