PROTECT & CONNECT HABITATS TO SECURE THE FUTURE FOR AFRICAN ELEPHANTS

A recent research study confirms the need for 'safe' landscapes to be protected and connected to enable African Savannah elephants to thrive.



The study from Science Advances 'collected 713 survey estimates of elephant population sizes from 103 protected areas from Tanzania southward' and 'calculated population changes over 24 years (between 1995 and 2020) to identify key spatial drivers of growth', as well as testing 'how regionally high levels of poaching influence these rates.'

The key finding is that protected areas need to be linked up to allow elephants the space to roam and travel over larger areas within relative safety. This is also crucial for other wildlife and plant-life to thrive and exist as close as possible to their natural habitat.


Did you know that wild elephants home ranges are at least 10km²? Being free to roam is integral to their quality of life; for them to have autonomy and follow their natural, innate instincts. Let's give elephants the space they need.
