NEW DATE!! A talk by Stephen Powles: "The Cave Elephants of Mount Elgon" 28th September, 7.30pm
A talk by Stephen Powles “Going Under Ground - The Cave Elephants of Mt Elgon
Mount Elgon, an extinct volcano straddling the Kenya/Uganda border, is home to a unique population of elephants. Consuming a montane vegetation made low in minerals by the leaching effect of heavy rainfall, elephants travel up to 150m into the mountain to “mine” the mineral rich volcanic rock. The talk will also explore the wider natural and cultural history of the mountain and the fascinating theories as to how the caves might have been formed.
