ERP achieves a monumental translocation

 

ERP Monumental Translocation

ERP successfully completed a historic translocation of 53 elephants from South Africa to Mozambique.

In July, Elephants, Rhinos and People (ERP) successfully completed a historic translocation of 53 elephants from two game reserves in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa to Zinave National Park in Mozambique. The elephants were secured and transported over 1,250km to Zinave, part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area.

The capture was conducted in two stages. The first focused on 29 elephants in the uMkhuze Section of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park in late June. The second stage, in early July, included 24 elephants in the Ithala Nature Reserve. Extraordinary care was taken to ensure that family units remained intact and together.

The translocation cleared two border posts and traversed three countries; South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique, making it one of the longest translocations ever carried out. This means that pressure has been alleviated on uMkhuze’s and Ithala’s elephant populations, diminishing the option of culling for the foreseeable future. Zinave’s hitherto tiny elephant population has been significantly boosted with a breeding herd. Zinave is already well-managed by an experienced management team and rangers.

ERP wishes to thank Conservation Solutions, the Isimangaliso Wetland Park Authority, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and the South African Department of Environmental Affairs for making the operation possible. A special thank you also to the Wild Tomorrow Fund for sponsoring the helicopter costs.
