Malawi to relocate 500 elephants in man-made migration

Half a dozen elephants have found a new home in Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve, Malawi, in the initial stage of a massive relocation project.
African Parks is relocating 500 "surplus" elephants from two national parks to Nkhotakota, where the threatened species have been wiped out by poachers for their valuable ivory.
After the animals were knocked out by darts in their hindquarters they were hung upside down from ankle straps and loaded onto large trucks, to begin their 185 miles long road trip to their new home.
