For 20 years, Elephants Alive has been studying the elephants that live in the Greater Kruger Area, as well as monitoring movements of 80 radio-collared elephants throughout the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park (South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe). Our research helps inform long term conservation planning - and sadly now also identified poaching hotspots.
Elephants Alive also works hard to minimize human: elephant conflict. One of the biggest issues is elephants impacting on large trees. Elephants Alive are pioneering an innovative approach using bee hives suspended in trees.
In addition, Elephants Alive works closely with the local impoverished communities, running education and engagement programmes, to empower, engage and inform them about elephant conservation issues.
