Beard continued to photograph African game, mist famously in his 1965 book, The End of the Game.  Many of the images in this book were taken in Kenya’s Tsavo National Park, where Beard worked witnessed over 35,000 elephants die as a consequence of infringing development and seeming conservation mismanagement. Beard, who suffered from dementia died on Long Island, New York in April 2020 in the midst of the Covid pandemic first wave, after going missing for a number of days.
