105 elephants have starved to death in Zimbabwe over the last three months as severe drought has put vegetation, animals, and Zimbabwe's human population at risk.
Footage filmed within the Mana Pool National Park on Sunday shows several elephant carcasses laying on the ground.
On top of the severe droughts, another factor leading to the elephants' starvation, according to Head of communication... Еще of Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Tinashe Farawo, is overpopulation.
«The challenge that we are facing is the overpopulation of the animals, this park when it was created in the 1930s it was meant to cater for at least 15 thousand elephants, now we are talking of more than 45-50 thousand elephants.»
He also added that they are desperately trying to save the animals by drilling «as deep as 200 metres» in search of more water.
The hard climate conditions in Zimbabwe have also impacted the livelihood of the country's human population, which already faces an ongoing economic crisis. A UN World Food Programme report published in August said up to 2 million people were at risk of starvation in Zimbabwe.
