Elephants Don't Wait in Line at the Border

I’m not the only one who has to queue at immigration checkpoints. I spotted this elephant at the Ngoma border between Namibia and Botswana. About 55% of Africa’s elephant population lives in the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area or "KAZA" region, where five countries share a border. The lead partner on the census project, Elephants Without Borders, calls the KAZA region home. The elephants in this area, like this one, are actively crossing borders without a thought to their passports.
