To carry out the Space for Giants vision of securing a future for elephants and their landscapes forever, the co-existence of people and elephants is vital. By monitoring their movements through collaring, Space for Giants can put in place land use strategies and long term solutions.
Space for Giants is currently working on a county wide electric fencing project to reduce human elephant conflict by 90%. The collars currently deployed are providing information on the performance of these fences. The fence have reduced crop raiding significantly but also show how elephants are exploiting weaknesses in fence alignments and designs.
