Ruaha-Katavi landscape program of the wildlife conservation society

Nearly three times the size of Switzerland, the Ruaha-Katavi Landscape is one of the largest intact savannah ecosystems in Africa. with support from Usaid (through the wcs southern Highlands & Ruaha-katavi Protection Program - sHaRPP) and private benefactors, our focus is on supporting core protected areas and safeguarding wildlife corridors and buffer zones across the landscape. we improve natural resource management, diversify community income and ensure the effective protection of elephants, all supported by scientific research and monitoring.

Continent-wide survey reveals massive decline in African savannah elephants.

Abstract

track log African elephants (Loxodontaafricana) are imperiled by poaching and habitat loss. Despite global attention to the plight of elephants, their population sizes and trends are uncertain or unknown over much of Africa. To conserve this iconic species, conservationists need timely, accurate data on elephant populations. Here, we report the results of the Great Elephant Census (GEC),the first continent-wide,standardized survey of African savannah elephants. We also provide the first quantitative model of elephant population trends across Africa. We estimated a population of 352,271 savannah elephants on study sites in 18 countries, representing approximately 93% of all savannah elephants in those countries. Elephant populations in survey areas with historical data decreased by an estimated 144,000 from 2007 to 2014, and populations are currently shrinking by 8% per year continent-wide, primarily due to poaching. Though 84% of elephants occurred in protected areas, many protected areas had carcass ratios that indicated high levels of elephant mortality. Results of the GEC show the necessity of action to end the African elephants’ downward trajectory by preventing poaching and protecting habitat. http://www.geekwire.com/2016/paul-allen-great-elephant-census-decline-africa/

Voler pour la préservation de l’environnement !

fly4conservationD’Amérique en Afrique : En juin 2013, Alexis Peltier et Michel Laplace Toulouse vont entreprendre un voyage aérien audacieux de 18000km à une vitesse moyenne de 130 km/h à bord d’un Piper Super Cub. L’objectif de ce voyage consiste, par le biais de conférences et de présentations tout au long du périple, à sensibiliser le plus de monde possible à la préservation animalière en dehors des zones protégées et plus particulièrement au sein du « Group Ranch » de Shompole au Kenya. Le Piper Super Cub, avion tout terrain, sera utilisé au Kenya par Alexis pour des programmes environnementaux comme l’étude des massifs forestiers, le suivi des migrations ou encore le comptage des animaux.

Soutenez leur projet en participant au safari dédié à « Flying for conservation » Safari Flying 4 Conservation Tous les revenus de ce safari sont dédiés au projet Flying 4 Conservation ainsi qu’à la communauté massaï de Shompole.

Nous vous invitons à consulter la version française de la plaquette de présentation de leur aventure, ou sa version anglaise.

Survey efforts

Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre and Network (HoA-REC&N), Addis Ababa University, is an organization that focuses on environmental concerns and sustainable development options within the Horn of Africa region. The Centre is an autonomous institution under Addis Ababa University and it facilitates, strengthens and advocates for initiatives related to environmental conservation and natural resource management.


HoA-REC&N, under the auspices of Addis Ababa University, has a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Gambella Peoples' National Regional State (GPNRS), to support the region in land use planning, as well as identifying areas important for the conservation of ecosystems and wildlife. To this end, Captain Alexis Peltier has been requested to support HoA-REC&N in conducting the required aerial survey work in GPNRS to help assess the abundance and distribution of wildlife species. The aerial work includes conducting wildlife counts, vegetation mapping, reconnaissance, identifying key areas of interest (for conservation), etc. Captain Alexis Peltier will be operating in Ethiopia from 1 October to 15 December 2013.

surveyDépart pour un vol de surveillance aérienne au dessus de la forêt des Aberdares.

L'équipe de surveillance a inclus le responsable KFS de la protection de la région de Central Highland, le Surveillant Senior de KWS du parc national des Aberdares, le Commandant Régional KFS et le manager de « The Rhino Ark Fence Community ».

Le vol a permis de localiser les emplacements d’activités illégales de déforestation et d’en mesurer l’ampleur, ceci afin de préparer des interventions de protection forestières immédiates.

Le vol a été co-sponsorisé par Air-Adventures, et donc d’une manière indirecte mais tout aussi importante grâce à votre participation aux safaris. Merci à tous mes amis et amies grands et petits de me permettre de continuer à réaliser des actions pour préserver cette nature qui nous est si chère. Alexis peltier
