The response of an elephant population to conservation area expansion: Phinda Private Game Reserve, South Africa



The response of an elephant population to conservation area expansion: Phinda Private Game Reserve, South Africa



Biological Conservation 141(12): 0-3138



Continuous human population expansion pressure on conservation ecosystems restricts wildlife areas, and necessitates active management. In areas of changing land-use and increasing human-animal conflict, responses of wildlife to direct human interventions can inform managers and planners. During August 2004, the boundary fences between Phinda Private Game Reserve and two neighbouring reserves were removed. This study examined behavioural responses of the resident elephants.
