    Botswana Says It’s Solved the Mystery of a Mass Elephant Die-Off

    Conservationists were baffled when hundreds of elephants died in the Okavango Delta this summer.



    HUNDREDS OF ELEPHANTS DIED IN Botswana earlier this year from ingesting toxins produced by cyanobacteria, according to government officials who say they will be testing waterholes for algal blooms next rainy season to reduce the risk of another mass die-off.

    The mysterious death of 350 elephants in the Okavango Delta between May and June baffled conservationists, with leading theories suggesting they were killed by a rodent virus known as EMC (encephalomyocarditis) or toxins from algal blooms.

    “Our latest tests have detected cyanobacterial neurotoxins to be the cause of deaths. These are bacteria found in water,” Mmadi Reuben, principal veterinary officer at the Botswana Department of Wildlife and National Parks, said in a news conference on Monday. “However, we have many questions still to be answered such as why the elephants only and why that area only. We have a number of hypotheses we are investigating.”

    Local sources suggest 70 percent of elephants died near water holes containing algal blooms, which can produce toxic microscopic organisms called cyanobacteria. Toxins were initially ruled out because no other species died, except for one horse, but scientists now think elephants could be particularly susceptible because they spend a lot of time bathing and drinking large quantities of water.

    This is a newspaper article from 2005 - Animals truly are magical

    Maybe not magical, but Natural...

    My dog grew up on the horse rescue i ran, he still runs into dog conflicts and stands between them... its fascinating

    I wonder if its due to the energy of his upbringing or just the breed (the south African boerboel was used as a livestock guardian)
    Hard times create strong men, Strong men create good times, Good times create weak men, Weak men create hard times.
    Where are you?

    My heart is broken. My beautiful Heeler passed away Friday in my arms after a brief illness. She has followed me across the US, never doubting my judgement. She was my best friend and confidant. My entire existence has be rattled. I have never met a kinder animal than my beautiful Blue. I was blessed to walk in her space for so many years.
