In 2007, I took a trip to Gabon to check out two national parks as a possible field site for my African forest elephant research.
Below are some of the photos from my journey to Ivindo National Park and some of the animals we saw along the way.
For the full story of what it was like to visit Ivindo National Park, listen to podcast episode #25 Choosing a Field Site for Forest Elephant Research.
