Bees for Babar (BfB) beneficiaries include elephants...animals_elephants panorama01

Elephants from Mole Park are less likely to be revenge poached as they are conditioned to avoid farms protected by bee hives.

 

Elephants of Mole Park...

Seidu Pasor, current community beekeeping trainer, has also frequently worked in Mole Park as a guide and accommodations manager.
   
Conrad Bérubé, executive director and co-founder of Bees for Babar, was approached by a young bull elephant while visiting Mole Park after conducting a series of training sessions in Mognori. (At which point a park guard pulled Conrad away to prevent him from inflicting any harm on the elephant.)

Bull elephants are generally solitary but will occasionally travel in twos or threes. The tusks are used as weapons against natural enemies or in sparring matches with other males. Illegal trafficking in ivory and loss of habitat are the principal threats to elephants world-wide
   
The elephant's trunk acts as a fifth limb and endsin lip-like structures that can be used to hold and manipulate objects. The trunk is also used to pull up vegetation and pass it into the mouth as well as to produce sound. It can also serve as a snorkel while the elephant is in deep water or to siphon up water for drinking or to spray onto the body to cool off.

The African elephant is the largest living terrestrial animal. Adults eat from 100 to 300 kilograms of food each day. It has larger ears than its Asian relatives and the right ears resemble the continent of Africa in shape.

The elephants above, from their large group, are most likely a matriarchal family group. The photo below (actually from Uganda) shows one of the distinguishing features of mature female elephants-- they have breasts.
