Elephant Population Management
The Elephant Population Management Program is an international collaboration of wildlife specialists, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, industry partners, game reserve/national park managers who are working together to alleviate elephant overpopulation in southern Africa without the use of culling. Our goal is to work together to establish a population management tool for use in parks and reserves in southern Africa. We have proven our surgical vasectomy technique is effective, humane and efficient making it a viable option for many parks and reserves. Through education we hope to transfer this knowledge from our US based team to a South African based team in order to make this more readily available to parks and reserves and make this a sustainable population management tool.
