Angola Beehive Fences

The residents living in these high conflict areas have been using methods such as use of fire and bells to keep elephants away from farms but it hasn’t been enough. The project aims to use beehive fences to reduce human-elephant conflict in these areas and Save the Elephants is happy to have facilitated funding two of the beehive fences built.

Marisa received training at our Research Center in Sagalla, Kenya. Her Ph.D. research and knowledge of beekeeping will be very beneficial to the beehive fence project in Angola.
