"Understanding how elephants and other animal populations react to droughts will be a central component of wildlife management and conservation," said Wildlife Conservation Society researcher Dr. Charles Foley, lead author of the study.
"It's enticing to think that these old females and their memories of previous periods of trauma and survival would have meant all the difference," added Foley."The data seem to support the speculation that the matriarchs with the necessary experience of such events were able to lead their groups to drought refugia."
During the 1970s and '80s, many of Eastern Africa's largest elephants fell victim to waves of poachers who were eager to exploit the profitability of the black market for ivory.
"Hopefully, this study underlines the importance of how crucial older matriarchs are to the health of elephant populations," added Foley.

Dr. Charles Foley, director of the Tarangire Elephant Project, said in a recent article that record amounts of illegal ivory are being seized and poaching is a major threat to African elephants. But Foley, pictured here with his family, is also using numbers in the fight to save these magnificent creatures. With help from the Indianapolis Zoo, Foley will soon begin implementing a new tracking program that will gather data on elephant migratory patterns. The Indianapolis Zoo raised $90,000 for the project through parking donations collected at the 2012 Super Bowl. "The Indianapolis Zoo is proud to support this vital work in helping to save African elephants, the world's largest land animal and one of the most intelligent and fascinating creatures on Earth," Foley said in the article.
