Fantastic news, it just shows the importance of conservation & working together to maintain reserves for the future. It will also bring tourists in so it will provide a tourist industry for jobs & reinvestment.

It is good news. Not out of the woods of course, so I hope these elephants
are hidden fairly well!

Thank you Cher.

Though i'm an avid animal lover and appreciate animal news,good and bad,i sometimes think in a situation as this one where it suggests quite a few elephants are thriving,can also be their downfall. Pumped up with this news,poachers will be sprinting there and we all know what happens next. These animals need a safe house and now they've been ratted out...not good at all!!!!

Now that they've been discovered, how long will it take for poachers to kill the herd?
