Big Tuskers

The legend continues…

Ever since the Magnificent Seven were first named in the 1970’s, Kruger’s elephants with large tusks have been a source of awe and inspiration around the world. While many of Africa’s elephant populations have seen the genes of their largest tuskers depleted by ivory hunting and poaching, Kruger’s legends live on.

Scientists are studying these impressive animals and you can help by providing information on any tusker you see in the park. See our Emerging Tuskers Project for more details.
