Our film on the tragic consequences of human-elephant conflict around Kenya’s Amboseli National Park.
FRIEND OF THE MONTH
Our friend of the month is Maureen Kinyanjui from Kenya, who works with our partner organisation, Save The Elephants, on the front line of human elephant conflict around Tsavo National Park. Maureen – who is studying for a PHD at Edinburgh University- works to reduce conflict by promoting welfare projects and bee farming.
TO PROTECT ELEPHANTS IT'S
TIME TO LOOK BEYOND IVORY
The EPI Foundation has a new vision for elephant protection. We believe conflicts between people and elephants over land and dwindling natural resources pose the greatest threat to the survival of the African elephant. See our video from Amboseli National Park, Kenya, on the cost of human-elephant conflict.
"We are delighted that the EPI is re-positioning its focus and expertise to prioritise human-elephant conflict. Together we need to find sustainable solutions, where people can prosper and our remaining elephants are safe. The collapse of tourism revenue as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic makes the challenge all the more urgent. We believe the EPI, with its continent-wide membership, is well placed to help find solutions"
