HABITAT CARRYING CAPACITY EVALUATION

To reduce Human Elephant conflict within any elephant range NWA is assessing carrying capacities and ways to improve.

Ideally carrying capacity should be at least 3 times actual population size, to get there food, water and safety for wild elephants have to be evaluated; improvements can come from removal of invasive plants, creation of additional grasslands, grassland maintenance, creation of additional water sources removal or at least reduction in disturbances like traffic, cattle raising, mining and other human activities from the elephant habitat areas.

NWA works closely with all relevant authorities and other NGOs.
