    About This Project

    Botswana recently experienced severe, highly publicized mortality of elephant, which authorities attribute to a natural toxin. Neighboring northwest Zimbabwe, including Hwange National Park, has a similar climate and topography and holds the country’s largest elephant population. In the past, elephant have also died suddenly at waterholes in Hwange. This project aims to test seasonal waterholes for natural toxins to predict episodes of mortality and better manage this problem.
