Elephants Alive

For more than 25 years, Elephants Alive has been studying African elephants, to ensure their survival, and to promote harmony with humans. Our study area is defined by where the elephants go, leading us to work in the Greater Kruger region, monitoring free-roaming elephants across South Africa, Mozambique, Eswatini, and Zimbabwe. To ensure conservation success, and the long-term preservation of these free-ranging elephants, Elephants Alive believes it is critical to empower, inform, and involve local impoverished communities. Where people and elephants intersect outside of Protected Areas, we conduct experimental research to mitigate human-elephant-conflict and diversify the income of subsistence farmers to build resilience.
