Title: Solving human-elephant conflicts at Thuma Forest Reserve, Malawi - Baby Elephant killed by poachers!
There was an immediate need for action toprotectboth the elephants and at the same time the property and live of the local communities.
As an emergency measure, a section of the required fence has been installed and completed in November 2009 by the Wildlife Action Group International e.V. on behalf of the District Assembly of Salima.
The local farmers contributed with incredible hard workmanshipto finish installing this section of the fence before the rainy season.
What has been achieved to date:
The now installed elephant fence-section allows the local people to reoccupy about 950 hectare of agriculture land, which they had abandoned because of the crop raiding elephants!
This film raises awareness and encourages donations to enable continuation of the conservation programme.
