Loziba elephant collaring

2 elephants were collared in an open area in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Province. The elephants have broken out of the reserve they were in and the owners do not have the finances to fix the fences or to recover the elephants. The government threatened to destroy the elephants within three months if nothing was done to stabilise the situation. By placing the collars on the elephants, we are able to manage two herds and ensure they do not move into community areas. This has temporarily secured their lives until a longer term solution is formulated.

RELOCATION UPDATE! ERP Elephant Relocation Aug 22

RP’s Dinokeng Bull Elephant Relocation Programme has started. The bull boxes have arrived and we are preparing to relocate four stunning bulls from the Dinokeng Game Reserve in South Africa, to Zinave National Park in Mozambique.

ERP is supporting Dinokeng in the relocation of the bulls as they have learned a habit of breaking fences and this has created problems for the reserve management team. Culling was a last option if the bulls could not be moved and
