Development of a corridor to connect elephant habitat
Join the Ice Challenge and support this goal
Within seven years, 144,000 African elephants have been killed. Southern Africa is home to over 50% of the African elephant, making this area the last stronghold of the species. The Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park is a 35,000 km² park that transcends multiple country borders. It links the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique, the Kruger National Park in South Africa, the Gonarezhou National Park, Manjinji Pan Sanctuary, and Malipati Safari Area in Zimbabwe, as well as the area between Kruger and Gonarezhou, the Sengwe.
In Mozambique, we are planning to create a corridor to connect two protected areas together with Elephants Alive and local organizations. Through GPS collars, we are able to track elephant movements. This increases our understanding of elephants’ landscape use and their habitat and safety needs. Through the corridor, elephant habitats will be connected, providing more space and food for the elephants, and increased biodiversity in the area. The restored habitat will be a safe haven for elephants, with fewer incidents of crop-raiding as a result. Bring the Elephant Home’s focus will mainly be on involving the local community in the corridor area through workshops and identifying job opportunities through the planting of trees, alternative crops, installing chilli and bee fences and ecotourism. In Thailand, Bring the Elephant Home is working on similar projects so that we can test and improve the model on both continents.
