This weekend I had the privilege of spending time behind the scenes in the CARING FOR GIANTS education program at Disney's Animal Kingdom. In this program you learn from African natives who have come on site to educate and inform about elephant - human encounters and ways in which the conservation fund is working to assist Africans to handle these issues in ways that don't harm the elephants or negatively impact the local peoples. This is the first of my portraits of this magnificent animal.
