We need your help to raise $100,000 to relocate up to 27 elephants in Mozambique to safety during the week of April 22, 2018.
Elephants, Rhinos & People recently received reports of two elephant bulls in Mozambique that are in an unprotected area populated by rural farmers and villages. This is a potentially explosive situation as elephants and humans clash leading to tragedies on both sides. Just two months ago, two other elephants in Mozambique attacked and killed a woman and both elephants were shot. When ERP went to investigate we found not two, but seventeen elephants in this area with reports of ten more in the vicinity. As winter time approaches, these elephants are more likely to wander into areas with crops, endangering the lives of elephants and people. The family of elephants we found also has babies and a tusker, putting them at especially high risk.
