In this photo taken Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015 and released by Fauna & Flora International Friday, Dec. 11, 2015, rare African forest elephants (Loxodonta cyclotis) are seen by a remote-sensing camera, in Western Equatoria State, South Sudan. The critically endangered elephant species has been photographed by researchers for the first time in South Sudan, significantly expanding the known range of the animal, but even in these remote forests it faces threats from illegal logging and from war.
