Within 40 years, Tanzania's elephant population
has plummeted by more than 86%.
In 2008, the LiveWildlife foundation established
an anti-poaching unit to deal with the crisis.
A team of rangers patrol the Chem Chem wildlife reserve
to ensure the animals have a safe route
between Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Park,
where the largest population of elephants live.
As a result of the initiative other species such as
giraffes, baboons and zebras
have now returned to the area.
