[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Preliminary genetic evidence suggests that there may be at least two species of African elephants, namely the savanna elephant (Loxodonta africana) and the forest elephant (Loxodonta cyclotis). However, the African Elephant Specialist Group believes that premature allocation into more than one species may leave hybrids in an uncertain conservation status (AfESG 2003). For this reason, it was decided to conduct the Red List assessment for the single species as currently described, encompassing both forest and savanna populations.
