PAST EXPLORATIONS

Mystery Explored: When Elephants Attack
Expedition Dates: May 13 - 28, 2008

Summary:

Over the last 3 decades, the number of Elephant attacks has increased dramatically in Africa and Asia. Once considered peaceful, noble animals, Elephants have suddenly begun attacking and killing humans in record numbers — and no one knows why. I went to Kenya, East Africa, to get a better sense of the problem and to explore what some hope are solutions.
