Don’t Fence Me In

Elephants Walking

If wild animals could sing, they might just be found bellowing the lyrics of this classic Cole Porter song:

Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above, don’t fence me in…

Wildlife needs a whole lot of room to roam. This is especially important during migration, when they trek great distances to find food, water and safe areas to birth and care for their little ones. In the case of the African elephant, their “little ones” are about 200 pounds when born.
