Promotional clip for Plant Elephant, a new book by zoologist and author, Dr Tammie Matson.


From the jungles of Borneo, to the civil strife of Assam, to the black markets of Vietnam, Dr Tammie Matson continues her quest to help reduce the human-elephant conflict around the world. In this follow-up to her bestselling memoir Elephant Dance, Tammie takes on the black markets of Asia determined to make a difference and break the chains of rhino-horn poaching and the illegal ivory trade.

Travelling from her new home in Singapore throughout South-East Asia, she meets presidents and traffickers in palaces and tourist markets, journeying to the dark heart of a dark industry. Returning to her beloved Africa, she finds old friends facing rough times and elephants and rhinos on the brink again. And torn between her passionate commitment to conservation and her precious growing son, Tammie faces her biggest challenge yet, balancing work and family. Thought-provoking, funny and moving, Planet Elephant is the continued story of one woman's courage and conviction.


Dr Tammie Matson is a zoologist and author who specialises in species conservation in Africa and Asia, especially elephants and rhinos.
