Growing crops in the remotes parts of Africa where elephants, herbivores by nature, roam freely across the land is an almost impossible task. Only one family of elephants can destroy a year’s worth of crops which often results in deadly conflicts between humans and animals. But rather than building tall fences around their properties, these farmers found a unique way of protecting themselves and their harvest.
Not only does this method keep elephants at bay, it also provides extra source of income for these people. This is something all of us should learn from, how to work with the nature rather than working against it.
