  • Taking Stock - Save the Elephants
    living elephants Hand in hand with ivory stockpile destruction is the need for a proper accounting of the stockpile itself A number of CITES resolutions and decisions are aimed at bringing control to trade in ivory whether legal trade or illegal trafficking and stockpile inventory is an action that enhances overall control CITES CoP16 Resolution 10 10 urges all Parties to maintain an inventory of government held stockpiles of ivory and where possible of significant privately held stockpiles of ivory within their territory and inform the Secretariat of the level of this stock each year before 28 February indicating the number of pieces and their weight per type of ivory raw or worked for relevant pieces and if marked their markings in accordance with the provisions of this Resolution the source of the ivory and the reasons for any significant changes in the stockpile compared to the preceding year If stockpiles are not properly inventoried with the total number of tusks and ivory pieces and morphometrics of each tusk accounted for then that are prone to corruption For example any potential ivory leakages from national stockpiles could be covered through replacement of the missing large tusks with new smaller ones from freshly killed elephants This suggests that large unsecure stockpiles present a tangible risk to living elephants today STE s main aim for involvement in the national ivory stockpile inventory processes would be to help ensure such inventories were done to the highest scientific standards to meet the CITES requirements Another aim would be to hopefully gain additional scientific information about the elephant source populations supplying the ivory Algorithms have been developed to determine the age of an elephant from the size mass of its tusk Elephant subspecies gender and cause of death can also be determined from tusk characteristics in some instances DNA samples taken from seized tusks could be used to determine the actual origin of those tusks Knowing this type of demographic information about the animals that constitute the stockpile could contribute to our understanding of the impacts of the illegal trade on the species in terms of seized or confiscated ivory and mortality trends in terms of tusks from elephants that died as a result of Problem Animal Control and natural mortality at local scales but also regional and continental scales Presently international and even national level policy decision about African elephant management rest largely on the knowledge about the scope and scale of the impacts of the illegal ivory trade on the African elephant resulting from data from the CITES MIKE and ETIS programs Ivory stockpiles offer a unique opportunity for an additional hard data stream that could help increase the resolution on the impacts of the illegal trade on the species that has been largely untapped Knowing the DNA origin of seized tusks could help authorities identify poaching hotspots and focus enforcement activities Lastly and perhaps just as importantly STE sees stockpile inventory as a valuable and necessary first step toward eventual stockpile destruction

    furnish daily patrols track collared elephants and intercept poachers KWS also facilitates harmonization and analysis of elephant mortality data Using innovative technology such as Google Earth STE analysts are given near real time information on the location and movement of the collared elephants Dr Iain Douglas Hamilton was one of the first to use radio tracking on collared elephants Today the technology includes ESRI software which clarifies GPS information There are currently 15 collared elephants being monitored by MEP these elephants are either problem elephants such as crop raiders or need extra protection due to large tusks The tracking data also helps the team understand why elephants visit certain hotspots steak to other areas when they visit unsafe areas and farmed areas The successful tracking abilities of STE is particularly impressive considering the 6000km2 area included in the Mara Elephant Project Accomplishments So far the Mara Elephant Project has arrested 88 individuals including 14 ivory dealers 27 ivory poachers 14 bush meat poachers 11 poachers with leopard skins 2 poachers with python skins 7 armed gang members and 2 loggers This represents a significant reduction in the environmental criminals in the area The project despite still being in early stages has dramatically reduced the number of elephants killed each month in the area The project also enjoys the appreciation of the local Maasai and the KWS Save the Elephants continues its support and looks forward to celebrating future successes with MEP We will continue the monitoring of 13 elephants collared in connection with the Mara Elephant Tracking and Conservation Program Grant as well as collaring 2 additional elephants The program will use tracking data to influence policy making surrounding ecological corridors mitigate human elephant conflict promote transboundary cooperation within the wider ecosystem and assist anti poaching forces More Projects Under Protection Tsavo Aerial Defence Protection Next Entries Donate The fate of elephants is in the balance The record price of ivory has attracted organised crime rebel militias and even terrorist groups fuelling a surge of poaching across the continent Without the outstanding support and generosity of our donors STE would not be able to continue securing a future for the elephants We urgently need your support while there is still time You can be of vital assistance by donating to either our core funds or to any of our projects Donate to STE Spread the Word The fate of elephants is in the balance The record price of ivory has attracted organised crime rebel militias and even terrorist groups fuelling a surge of poaching across the continent Without the outstanding support and generosity of our donors STE would not be able to continue securing a future for the elephants We urgently need your support while there is still time You can be of vital assistance by donating to either our core funds or to any of our projects Find Out How How You Can Help Over the last years our world leading conservation efforts have been possible thanks to the
