This 115-page Solitary Elephants in Japan Report by elephant biologist Dr. Keith Lindsay is a detailed examination of 14 solitary elephants in Japan. Author: Dr. Keith Lindsay is a biologist best known for his long-term study of elephants. Dr. Lindsay’s work began in 1977 in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, the top place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants. There, he began researching wild elephants with the Amboseli Trust for Elephants, now the longest running study of elephant behavior in the wild. From then on, Dr. Lindsay’s professional work with elephants expanded to other parts of Africa, Asia and North America. And his growing expertise in the field led to more work consulting on elephant conservation and management projects globally.
In recent years, Dr. Lindsay has worked in relation to CITES (the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species) to help to stop the ivory trade. He has also been active in promoting improved well-being for elephants held in captivity. Dr. Lindsay regularly participates in global events and conferences as one of the world’s foremost elephant experts, and a leading authority on their conservation and protection.
