As a kid, she loved to ride through the countryside on her tall horse. She loved to visit faraway places. And she... especially loved to learn about nature and the world around her. So when Cynthia traveled to Africa and met the world s most ENORMOUS land animal, the African elephant, at Amboseli National Park in Kenya, she knew she had found her life s work. Cynthia has spent years learning everything she can about elephants and sharing these fascinating creatures with the world. She is a scientist, nature photographer, and animal-rights activist, fighting against the ivory poachers who kill so many elephants for their tusks.
