1 Mins read

Hundreds of elephants have mysteriously died recently in Botswana in what’s being called a “completely unprecedented” event and a “conservation disaster.”


Here are some of the 350+ elephant carcasses that have been spotted in the Okavango Delta since the beginning of May…

As of this writing, authorities are still unsure what caused the animals to die…

Dr. Niall McCann from the National Park Rescue charity told the BBC that local conservationists first alerted the government in early May, after flying over the delta.

“They spotted 169 in a three-hour flight,” McCann told the BBC. “To be able to see and count that many in a three-hour flight was extraordinary. A month later, further investigations identified many more carcasses, bringing the total to over 350.”
