I picked up this from News Quirks by Roland Sweet:
TOO MUCH TIME ISN'T ALL HE HAS ON HIS HANDS
Kenyan conservationist Mike Bugara announced he has figured out
how to make paper out of elephant dung. He collects the
droppings, boils them until they are the consistency of oatmeal,
then rolls them out into sheets and lets them dry in the sun.
You might try contacting Mike Bugara, but he is probably out working in
his chosen field.
