The worst drought in decades, showed how vulnerable Africa is to climate change, and that people and wildlife will share a similar fate.

n the parched northern county of Baringo, juvenile elephants were rescued from drying quagmires of mud, endangered giraffes suffered miscarriages, school children had their classes canceled when their rainwater tanks went dry.

In a sign of hope, local residents rescued the stranded elephants from the muddy death traps.
