Why collaring?

By monitoring the collared elephants, we can better understand their movements including home ranges and migratory routes. It also provides a better understanding of how changing land use patterns are impacting the species, including how elephants interact in community areas.

The information provided can also help predict locations where elephants may come into conflict with people. This tracking is vital for management and security, allowing partners to respond quickly to suspected poaching as well as any human-elephant conflicts.

Our work

Along with collaring, we’re supporting the development of community conservancies which provide opportunities for local people to benefit from having wildlife, including elephants, on their land e.g. through tourism and alternative livelihoods. We also work with communities to better help mitigate human-elephant conflict, and we’re supporting elephant surveys to better understand population sizes.

Adopt an elephant today to help fund projects like this and also our other vital work around the world.
