Our Approach

The MEP Method:

We save and protect the African elephant population in the Mara/Serengeti ecosystem by combatting the ruthless operations of poachers and fostering positive human-elephant relations.

The elephant collars MEP uses provide priceless research ensuring long-term data collection. They tend to last 3-5 years and track each elephants’ movements precisely. We can see how these vastly roaming animals travel. We can see if they are spending time on private land, in conservancies or in the national park.

This movement tracking can inform our future laws that could ensure land is provided for the elephants to be able to travel freely and safely between the corridors.
