The Last Giants: The Rise and Fall of the African Elephant 
by Levison Wood
Paperback – 31 March 2020
RRP $32.99
This book comes at a critical time. Thirty years ago, Africa was home to a million elephants, today the figure stands at only half that. Meanwhile in the span of a lifetime, the human population has more than doubled.
In Levison Wood’s THE LAST GIANTS, he explores the rapid decline of one of the world’s favourite animals. Filled with stories from his own time spent travelling with elephants in Africa, the book is a passionate wake-up call for this endangered species we take for granted. THE LAST GIANTS was written to inspire us all to act – to learn more and help save the species from permanent extinction.
