Time has flown as we are already in the second quarter of the New Year. If you wish for an overview of all our achievements in 2018, please download our annual report.

We kick started 2019 in a big way by organising a workshop and co-funding an inspirational few days with many of our colleagues from neighbouring countries as well as guests from abroad. We then collared more elephants in Mozambique to see how they use the Futi corridor, historically linking Maputo Special Reserve with Tembe National Park in South Africa. We enlarged our skills and broadened our horizons to better conserve elephants across Africa by touching base with Save the Elephants and attending their strategic meeting in Kenya. Both myself and our Tracking Projects Manager, Anka Bedetti de Kock, also had the privilege of visiting Dr. Jake Wall as newly appointed Director of Research and Conservation for the Mara Elephant Project. Here Anka learnt some valuable skills, which will benefit the future reporting outputs of collared elephants to managers and donors who have kindly sponsored and supported our efforts to collar over 90 elephants in almost 150 collaring operations since 1998.

We hope you enjoy the read!

With elephant hugs,
