Survey of the five KAZA countries shows elephant populations are stable

Results will further inform coordinated wildlife management plans

Leaders of the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) today expressed optimism as they revealed the results of the KAZA Elephant Survey. KAZA TFCA includes Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe which have common international borders along the Okavango and Zambezi River basins. The estimated elephant population for the region was calculated at 227,900, indicating that the population appears stable.

Delivering his opening remarks at the launch, Zambia’s Minister of Tourism, Honourable Rodney Sikumba, who is also Chairperson of the KAZA Ministerial Committee, reflected on the survey’s scale and scope. “Flying over this expansive terrain, meticulously adhering to rigorous scientific standards while surveying Africa’s largest contiguous elephant population, is a testament to the collective dedication and perseverance of all involved.”

“We undertook this unprecedented aerial survey to provide an accurate estimate of the number of live elephants, elephant carcasses, and other large herbivores in this region that is home to more than half of the savanna elephant herds in Africa,” said Dr Nyambe Nyambe, Executive Director of the KAZA Secretariat. “This rich dataset now gives us the opportunity to understand the health of our ecosystems and implement best practices for wildlife management and human-wildlife coexistence.”

Great information. It’s nice to see that what we as hunters often tell non hunters.

That our money actually helps the animal more than just saying you love the animal.
