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.
