Morfil (French: Ile à Morfil; literally, "Ivory Island") lies between the River Senegal and the Doué River in northern Senegal. Around the eleventh century, Morfil was the centre of Tekrur, one of the first Islamic sub-Saharan states. As such, it was an important centre of trans-Saharan trade. The island later became part of the Ghana Empire, then the Mali Empire, and was finally conquered by the French. It is named for the elephants which once roamed the island, but are now locally extinct.
