- improving human-wildlife interactions
Elephant use of human-dominated landscapes within Botswana is of special interest.
Botswana sustains the world’s largest population of elephants, a population that crosses borders to surrounding countries.
In Botswana human-elephant relationship is unique given the country’s large elephant population and relatively low human population.
Management of human-elephant conflict is a complex, multi-layered, multi-disciplined topic.
We examine the movement of elephants through different human-dominated landscapes and how the use of different mitigation measures, including urban corridors and bees, change human and elephant behaviour.
