Giving workshops and conducting survey research among communities

Join the Ice Challenge Fundraiser and support this goal
We want to give workshops on beehive fences and honey production, chili screens, and alternative crops. This will not only provide insight into sustainable solutions for human-elephant conflicts, but also contribute to local skills, social cohesion, and knowledge exchange. Through the workshops, community members will obtain the tools and knowledge to initiate their own elephant conservation projects and at the same time realize sustainable, animal-friendly income for the community.

Farmers in Mozambique are confronted with crop-raiding elephants, poverty, seasonal droughts, and floods. Subsistence farmers are vulnerable, which makes poaching of elephants and rhinos a lucrative alternative business. Poaching has become more socially acceptable amongst local communities in this area. It has been shown that poverty and corruption are stronger catalysts for poaching than the lack of law enforcement. Consequently, Mozambique is one of the countries which has been severely affected by poaching.
