HUMAN-ELEPHANT CONFLICT IS PREVENTABLE

With your help, we can ensure the coexistence of people and elephants, and restore critical wildlife corridors in Tanzania

We are working with local communities to alleviate human-elephant conflict, which is rapidly on the rise due to human population increase and severe habitat loss across Africa. Conflict occurs when elephants enter farmland that borders their natural habitat. Crops are destroyed, livelihoods are lost, and farmers retaliate. There are fatalities on both sides, and with hundreds of thousands of elephants already lost to ivory poaching, every elephant we can save counts.

The good news is that this destructive cycle can be reversed. The elephant population in Northern Tanzania is slowly increasing by five percent each year (Ref: Great Elephant Census). Your support enables us to keep the peace, preserve the land and protect both elephants and people in these conflict hotspots.

Building a healthy coexistence between elephants and people requires long-term solutions for restoring wild spaces that directly benefit neighbouring communities. Wild Survivors use innovative, scalable and impactful initiatives – such as beehive fences, funded by you and managed by communities – to create highly effective methods of deterring elephants from farmland. Together, we are restoring critical habitat ranges and creating new community enterprises. What you do counts.
