News Preventing Human– Elephant Conflict in Benin

Anti-poaching and other conservation efforts in northern Benin (West Africa) have been successful – the elephant population is growing. This is good news for the park’s ecosystem, but has also led to an increase in conflict between elephants and communities living in the area.

For this reason, the Born Free Foundation and Humane Society International (Australia) have been funding a project conducted by Benin’s wildlife authorities which is investigating ways in which conflict can be avoided, for the benefit of both the elephants and those living alongside them in the W Biosphere Reserve.
