Wall, J., Wittemyer G., Klinkenberg, B., LeMay, V., Blake S., Strindberg S., Henley, H.,, Vollrath, F., Maisels, F., Ferwerda, J., Douglas-Hamilton I.

Current Biology

Over the last two millennia, and at an accelerating pace, the African elephant (Loxodonta spp. Lin.) has been threatened by human activities across its range.1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 We investigate the correlates of elephant home range sizes across diverse bio

Effectiveness Of Wildlife Underpasses And Culverts In Connecting Elephant Habitats: A Case Study Of New Railway Through Kenya’s Tsavo National Parks (2021)

Okita-Ouma, B., Koskei M., Tiller L., Lala, F., King, L., Moller, R., Amin, R., Douglas-Hamilton I.

African Journal of Ecology

Transportation networks can be a major impediment to wildlife movements. We assessed the use of wildlife underpasses and culverts along a newly constructed railway in Kenya's Tsavo National Parks by African elephants (L. africana).

Changing Seasonal, Temporal And Spatial Crop-raiding Trends Over 15 Years In A Human-elephant Conflict Hotspot (2021)

Tiller, L. N., Humle, T., Amin, R., Deere, N.J., Lago, B.O., Leader-Williams, N., Sinoni, F.K., Sitati, N., Walpole, M., Smith, R.J.

Biological Conservation

Human-wildlife conflict is increasing due to rapid natural vegetation loss and fragmentation. We investigated seasonal, temporal and spatial trends of elephant crop-raiding in the Trans Mara, Kenya during 2014–2015 and compared our results with a previous
