There have been no surveys carried out in Sierra Leone in the last ten years to the standards required for generating an estimate. There may be 135 to 155 elephants in areas not systematically surveyed in Sierra Leone. These guesses likely represent a minimum number, and actual numbers could be higher than those reported.
