An aerial "total count" of wildlife (a survey in which an attempt is made to count all individuals, rather than a sample of them) was done during our recent stay in Gorongosa National Park. One day we were lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time and were able to get updated information about the location of elephant groups from helicopter pilot, Mike Pingo, GRP Science...

Do you see anything unusual about either of these elephants who were seen in Gorongosa National Park in November? We do, but we had the advantage of seeing them up close, and I photographed them while Petter filmed them. We can tell you that the eyes of the young female on the right are highly unusual. In this photograph they appear open and clear with very small pupils, but in the field and...

Even in big aggregations of elephants, it isn't that often that calves become seriously lost. That is because so many of their elders are keeping an eye (or trunk) on them. This female infant explorer belongs to another family and Junia and her girls seem to be gently shepherding her back to where she belongs. Seconds later she was with her family. #GorongosaNationalPark

Our Trail Camera work in Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique, has been really successful at helping us to get a better understanding of the reclusive elephants that live in the forested habitat along the Pungue River. Since the elephants only come to the river at night we must rely on infrared images. Many of these are not good enough quality to describe and register an elephant in our...

In Gorongosa National Park we watched as a group of elephants suddenly bunched together - but it was more like a scrum (heads and tails down) than typical Bunching behavior. I was wondering what they were doing, when suddenly there was a loud clap of thunder. Clearly the elephants had picked up on it’s low rumblings before we heard it, which is not very surprising considering the excellent low...

To be in the National Geographic family is a privilege for any conservationist - we are thrilled to be supported by NGS again - this time for our work in Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique. We had meetings with a variety of people in different departments in NGS HQ in Washington, D.C. this past Friday. We ended up in the basement with Eric Berkenpas, Senior Director of Remote Imaging, and...

In 2014 we wrote an article from the Maasai Mara that was published on National Geographic' “A Voice for Elephants and Rhinos”. We called it "Gift to the Maasai Mara, a Male Elephant is Born." This was after a few years of serious poaching in this world renown ecosystem. Since then the poaching has gone drastically down - in the Mara, at least - and figures from 2016 confirms this very...

Based on what we post on Facebook some of you may think that every day in the field is an adventure - that we always have experiences with elephants that most people can only dream of. Well, it isn't alway like that. Looking for elephants often means hours and hours in a sweltering hot and dusty car, driving on bumpy dirt roads, or navigating slowly through the bush trying to avoid pig-holes...

We recently posted a video and an article on this topic from the educational website Nautil.us, both of which were based on an interview with #ElephantVoices, Joyce Poole in Gorongosa National Park (You'll find it on [ Hhmi.org Link ]. The story about how poaching for the ivory trade is leading to higher proportions of tuskless elephants has gained a lot of media attention, being picked up by...

It is heart breaking to know that elephants are on the run almost everywhere they roam. They are hunted and persecuted and in conflict with human beings all around Africa. It is not difficult to see the signs in their behavior and in their patterns of movement.

Elephants are masters of evasion, master team-players, but, sadly they can’t outsmart the weaponry and methods of sophisticated...

We are glad to see this recent paper, which highlights the potential positive correlation between eco-tourism, local benefits and elephant numbers. With the current human population growth across Africa, the future of elephants and other wildlife depends on communities being rewarded for living with wildlife.

“Local communities often pay the costs of elephant...

One of the more common gestures among elephants is the placing of a trunk into, or near to, another’s mouth. This gesture can mean different things depending upon the context it occurs. It is often used as a greeting between elephants who are acquaintances; by mothers and allo-mothers to reassure infants and calves; by calves to sample food in their mothers’ mouths.

When elephants are...

Being a small organisation with big ambitions we’re glad to get some extra help - Ann Early is among volunteers who are putting in efforts for #ElephantVoices.

Part of our focus in our work in Gorongosa National Park is transfer of knowledge. While we have a lot of to learn from people working and living in Gorongosa, some of the Gorongosa folks may have a bit to learn about elephants and how we can work together for their best interests.

There are many talented and dedicated people engaged in the Gorongosa Restoration Project many of whom are...
