The aim of the creators of Remembering Elephants was to produce the most beautiful photographic book on elephants ever made. 65 of the world’s top wildlife photographers (including eight overall former winners of Wildlife Photographer of the Year) donated images for the project, including Art Wolfe, Frans Lanting, Jonathan & Angela Scott and Michael Poliza. Inside we follow the typical life of an elephant, from birth through to old age.
The book was the brainchild of and produced by wildlife photographer Margot Raggett after she saw a poached elephant in Northern Kenya. Her ambition was to use the book to raise both awareness of elephant poaching and also to raise funds to protect the species.
With a foreword by Born Free actress and charity co-founder Virginia McKenna OBE, all profits from the sale of the book go to elephant protection projects. So far more than GBP135,000 has been distributed to projects in Kenya, Mali, Malawi, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe.
