It was time to replace the collars of two Erindi elephants. This is no easy task. It takes a considerable amount of resources to track, dart and re-collar these huge animals. Whilst the animal is under (carefully supervised) sedation, we take measurements and other vital statistics for research and conservation data. Once the elephants are woken, they get up and carry on as if nothing has happened. We hope you enjoy this “behind the scenes” glimpse of the conservation efforts at Erindi.
