The desert elephant has evolved or rather, adapted physically to it’s environment differently to other African elephants: it has longer legs and wider feet suited to a sandy environment and it can go without water for several days. They are not a separate species to the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) nor even a sub-species but member of the same species , adapted to a arid environment like the north west of Namibia. In the 1980s, the population of desert elephants reached a critical number with just 50/70 specimens. Today, thanks to effective conservation projects, the population has increased to about 500 specimens; however it remains a population at risk of extension due to poaching and trophy hunting.
