Forest Elephant


Elephants are found in rainforests of Africa (the Congo), southeast Asia, and India. Rainforest elephants are typically smaller than elephants found in the savannas of Africa. Here's an account of an experience I had with an angry mother in the rainforest of Gabon in Central Africa: When elephants attack. Surviving an elephant charge in the Congo rainforest of Gabon

The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
