105 elephants have starved to death in Zimbabwe over the last three months as severe drought has put vegetation, animals, and Zimbabwe’s human population at risk.
Footage filmed within the Mana Pool National Park on Sunday shows several elephant carcasses laying on the ground.
On top of the severe droughts, another factor leading to the elephants’ starvation, according to Head of communication of Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Tinashe Farawo, is overpopulation.
