The last herd

The last herd WILDLIFE officials in Namibia are battling to save the world's last herd of desert elephants. The herd of 50 is threatened with the anthrax virus. As the disease can kill within 24 hours, officials are trying to vaccinate the elephants with darts fired from a helicopter. Desert elephants are no different in appearance from other African elephants. Their adaptation to desert life makes them unique.
