URBAN ELEPHANTS

- 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.
