Elephants – Super Creatures demonstrates how fascinating elephants are through descriptions of their natural history, physiology, ecology, intelligence, and social behaviour. The book is peppered with easy-to-understand findings from cutting-edge scientific research and anecdotes about elephants worldwide. Super Creatures also explains elephants’ conservation status and what readers can do to help. The book also features a foreword by Dr AJT Johnsingh. By introducing children to some of the most exciting facts and stories about elephants, we hope to build a greater understanding of and support for elephants.
