About This Project

In the Ol Pejeta Conservancy of central Kenya, human-elephant encounters are causing conflict. Farmers are in a battle to stop crop-raiding by male elephants. Sanctioned or illegal killing is currently used to stop the elephant raiders. The aim of my project is to test non-lethal methods aimed at modifying the behavior of raiding elephants through conditional stimulus training. GPS-tracking data will provide Kenya Wildlife Services with evidence that non-lethal methods will work.
