Migrating Elephant Herd Continues Journey Through Yunnan Province

An elephant herd migrating through China’s Yunnan Province was spotted moving southwards towards Yuxi City, between June 22 and 23, according to authorities.

The herd had been travelling north, spotted as far north as Kunming, but more recently had been moving southwards.

The government agency monitoring the migration said a single elephant was about 32 km away from the main group on Wednesday and that all 15 elephants were safe.

The herd’s long journey, which began in Xishuangbanna National Nature Reserve, has been the source of some bafflement for scientists. Credit: Yunnan Provincial Headquarters, Safety and Precaution of Asian Elephants via Storyful
