Community support

Thank you to all who have identified with this project and have contributed to making sure it can continue.

We have little to report during the period since COVID has disrupted this program to a large degree.  However, be that as it may, we have still achieved part of our vision for this project in that we have been able to warn villagers of the likelihood of elephants moving from Chizarira National Park into the neighbouring villages so that they are able to take precautions such as putting bonfires around fields, having dogs with them and beating drums and old cans.

This warning system would normally be done by the Community Guardian, but as we are unable at this stage to reemploy one, we personally meet with the Chiefs and Village Heads and convey the information.

One collared elephant has moved from the park through the villages to Kariba Lake.  He has travelled over 300kms and we have been able to plot and monitor his movements and provide advance warning to the villages.

In addition to this we have put up mobile livestock holding pens for the protection of livestock against lions and spotted hyaenas.  This has worked well and as soon as we are back on track with a Community Guardian in place, we will begin to document raiding incidences so that we can obtain an idea of trends of attacks.
