Borneo’s Pygmy Elephants

Im dichten Wald Borneos, entlang des Flusses Kinabatangan leben seltene Zwergelefanten. Erst kürzlich entdeckten Forscher, dass sich bezüglich ihrer DNA deutlich von asiatischen Elefanten unterscheiden. Doch die Situation der Mini-Elefanten ist kritisch. Sie sind das Ziel erbarmungsloser Wilderer. Der Fährtenfinder Bert bemüht sich um die Rettung der Tiere. Er hat sich ihnen vorsichtig genähert und erstaunliche Verhaltensweisen der Zwergelefanten beobachtet.
