  • The Desert Elephants of Mali - Save the Elephants
    the network of pathways that the elephants use A mile wide gateway in a sandstone ridge known locally as la Porte des Elephants is revealed as a critical bottleneck Although the Gourma elephants are currently free to move over a wide range we found they spend a large amount of time in relatively few areas called hot spots that we believe are critical for their survival These elephant hot spots should be considered conservation priorities Quote from Jake Currently there is little human settlement in the area but if that changes the elephants may become isolated from key parts of their range The Gourma elephants have historically enjoyed relatively peaceful coexistence with the local Touareg Fuhlani and Dogon peoples Until recently these groups mainly practiced pastoralism but are now beginning to settle and turning to agriculture Conflict between humans and elephants is increasing as a result Hunting by man and climatic changes has reduced their numbers and range considerably Today there are estimated to be around 350 remaining individuals The Gourma elephants are believed to be the most northerly population of elephants in Africa since the loss of the Atlas Mountains population in the 1970 s and are remnants of a much larger population that once extended across the entire north of Africa War and Elephants With organized crime linked to the ivory trade pervading many countries in Africa Mali will likely not be an exception putting these 350 elephants at risk of easy decimation given their affinity to travel in large aggregations We fear that they may become victims of civil disturbance in the North of Mali due to the uprising currently taking place said Iain In 2012 at least three elephants were killed in the region With little protection for elephants in the area their own tusks may yet prove a greater threat than the extreme conditions in which they have learnt to survive More Projects Under Research Samburu Elephant Project Research 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
