Elephant Underpass Reuniting Kenya Herds

Migrating elephants are just doing their thing, but cause damage to farms and fences, and run into trouble on highways. But an underpass beneath Nanyuki-Meru road in northern Kenya, built just for the elephants, allows herds to pass through the area with ease. It was completed in 2010, and hundreds of elephants have been seen using the corridor. The underpass is part of a long-term project to restore traditional migration routes. Read about it and see more pictures at National Geographic News. Link -Thanks, Marilyn Terrell!
