The Effects of Translocation on the Behavior and Habitat Use of African Elephants, Kenya

Even though many elephants have been translocated over the years, virtually no research had been conducted to determine the effects of translocation on elephants and whether it is a practical management tool for solving human-elephant conflict. Monitoring the activities of elephants post translocation enabled an evaluation of the elephants’ success in a new habitat and provided important information regarding the conservation value of translocations.
