Mozambique Beehive Fences

In 2017 the project established a second beehive fence trial site in Mozambique within the buffer zone of Gorongosa National Park. Brazilian Master’s student Paola Branco trained with Elephants and Bees as well as PAMS Foundation Tanzania to test different deterrent methods including the use of chillies. Engagement with members of the community so far has revealed perceptions of their effectiveness, including the “spicy beehive fence”.

We thank Wildlife Conservation Network, Elephant Action League and Artypopart for their financial support of this trial of beehive fences in Mozambique.
