When Elephants and Humans live side by side there can be severe consequences on both sides.
We have been deploying our “Toolboxes” to local communities in Mozambique to help them avoid conflict with Elephants in ways that are safe for Humans and Animals.
STS Wildlife Vets Dr Joao Almeida & Dr Hugo Pereira recently visited local authorities in Mozambique to distribute our Human-Elephant Conflict (HEC) toolboxes.
It is important that we provide training on the correct use of the tools in the boxes to ensure that they are deployed correctly and safely for both animals and humans.
The concept of a mobile HEC kit aims to respond to problem areas by providing a fighting chance to the very poor communities affected by the Elephants.
It is likely that in the future with increased urbanisation and land conversion, these magnificent creatures will be forced into more restricted habitats. This will enhance the Human-Elephant conflict due to increased contact between the two. Therefore, we must do something to help mitigate this.
STS are hoping to raise $1800 to fund the creation and distribution of 10 boxes in problem areas.
