Tim – Born in 1969, he is the son of Trista and the grandson of the grand old matriarch Teresia, leader of Amboseli’s TD family. He struck out on his own and became independent from his family at the age of 14 and spent the next 15 years growing and learning about being a bull elephant. By the age of 29 it was evident that he was going to be very beautiful. He soon started coming into musth–the period of heightened aggression that bulls experience on a yearly basis.A very successful male, Tim is now 44 years old and the father of many calves. He is in his prime and could be targeted poachers; to lose him now would be a tragedy for the Amboseli population. He should be passing on his good genes to many more calves in the future.
We must protect Tim. SPREAD THE WORD?#?HandsOffOurElephants?
