Abstract:

The total aerial count of Elephants in Laikipia-Samburu Ecosystem and
for the second time in Marsabit was conducted between 24th and 28th
November 2008. Total counts of elephants, their carcasses and Gravy’s
Zebra were done. Livestock and other wildlife species mainly the large
herbivores were also counted. Coming six years after the preceding total
count of Omondi et. al. 2002, the data provides a basis for assessment of
the trends in the ecosystem. Within Laikipia-Samburu ecosystem, 7415

Abstract:

African forest elephants– taxonomically and functionally unique–are being poached at accelerating rates, but we lack rangewide
information on the repercussions. Analysis of the largest survey dataset ever assembled for forest elephants (80 footsurveys;
covering 13,000 km; 91,600 person-days of fieldwork) revealed that population size declined by ca. 62% between
2002–2011, and the taxon lost 30% of its geographical range. The population is now less than 10% of its potential size,

Abstract:

Foraging behaviour and habitat selection occur
as hierarchical processes. Understanding the factors that
govern foraging and habitat selection thus requires investigation
of those processes over the scales at which they
occur. We investigated patterns of habitat use by African
elephants (Loxodonta africana) in relation to vegetation
greenness to investigate the scale at which that landscape
attribute was most closely related to distribution of elephant
locations. We analysed Global Positioning System radiocollar

Abstract:

This report is the fifth in a series of surveys that depicts the status and trends of the elephant ivory markets in a
particular region of the world. This investigation covered the United States of America (USA) and Vancouver,
Canada. It differs significantly from previous studies of this trade by quantifying the nature and scale of the
market. The investigators made the survey between March and December 2006 and March and May 2007.
Seventeen cities and towns were selected for study based on their population size and wealth, and tourist
importance.

Abstract:

This monograph reports on a survey of the ivory trade in four East Asian nations and one Special
Administrative Region: China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong. The purpose of the
survey was to establish a set of baseline indicators on aspects of the trade in the selected countries.
From this, conservationists will be able to monitor and evaluate future changes, in accordance
with CITES Resolution Conf 10.10 (Rev.). The target users are national government officers, nongovernment
