Forest snitches: Elephant spatial behavioral strategies as revelators of human activities in a poaching context

Project description

Helping Africa’s forest elephants

Poachers are threatening the largest land mammal on Earth. The last of the African forest elephants are being slaughtered for their ivory tusks. Only 100 000 of these large herbivores are left and they are now recognised as critically endangered. To help save the elephants from extinction, the EU-funded ForSE project will study forest elephant space use patterns to assist anti-poaching actions. Specifically, the project will develop an interactive tool based on the analyses of space use of collared forest elephants to support anti-poaching actions. The results of this MSCA international fellowship will assist conservation organisations.
