Devon Mammal Group AGM, followed by a talk by Stephen Powles “Going Under Ground - The Cave Elephants of Mt Elgon
We will hold a short AGM before the talk. You can find the agenda, accounts and minutes from the 2021 AGM HERE.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: The event will be held at the Exeter Phoenix (limited places), but will also be available online via Zoom
