MALI

Mali has Africa’s most northerly elephants, a single population of a few hundred in the Gourma region who migrate large distances and are well adapted to the arid conditions of the Sahel. They are threatened by political insecurity, poaching and agricultural expansion. Mali joined the EPI in 2017.
