ROPE Techniqe to keep wild elephants away from farm lands

Hi All


On 27th-28th Feb 07, I attended a symposium on 'Emerging Conservation Strategies of Endangered Species" in which one of the speaker was Winnie Kirru from Kenya. She is doing 'Man Animal Conflict' project at Amboseli Park in Kenya. The stress in her speech was on using simple techniques by use of local and cheap resources. Therein she mentioned using spices dipped ROPE Technique to keep elephants away from farm lands. This is dart cheap and effective compared to wire or wall barricading. Those who are interested in contacting her please write to me so that I can forward your email to her for further communication directly.
