Elephants are changing behaviour in fear of poachers

African elephants use the cover of darkness to protect themselves against poachers, a new study has revealed.

Research, conducted by Save The Elephants and the University of Twente in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service, has discovered that elephants move more at night in areas that suffer high levels of poaching, turning to feeding and travelling instead of sleeping.
