In 2001, environmentalist and wildlife author Gareth Patterson, well known for his fi ght for the greater protection of Africa's lions and elephants, set out in search of the truth about the Knysna elephants. Patterson uncovered new facts about the African elephant, facts that can now contribute to the future preservation of what has been described as 'the most loved animal in the world'.

In a frightening world of environmental gloom and doom, climate change and the loss of wildlife species and habitat, The Secret Elephants in contrast tells how a tiny relic elephant population has defi ed what was thought to be inevitable extinction. Through previously unknown survival strategies the elephants have brought themselves back from the very brink.
