New Video on the Elephants of Makalali

Due to human encroachment and fences, Southern Africa’s elephants are losing their habitat, and scientists believe some elephant populations have grown too large. Methods of elephant population control have included culling (killing) and translocation (anesthetizing and moving them to less populated areas).

The Greater Makalali Private Game Reserve in Limpopo Province, South Africa, in collaboration with the Humane Society International, have successfully pioneered a remarkable new elephant population management method — immuno-contraception. Elephant ecologist and Ph.D. candidate, Audrey Delsink, who is part of the Immuno-Contraception Research Team, explains the extraordinary and inspiring story.

Please view the video, made by Brad Laughlin of Corelight, below.
