With funding from the Blue Sky Society Belief, Elephants Alive was capable of efficiently recollar an elephant cow in Higher Kruger yesterday, who has been monitored by the organisation since 2005.
The elephant cow, named Umbabat, was darted by wildlife vet Ben Muller, then shortly attended to by the Elephants Alive crew on the bottom, with help from the women on this 12 months’s Rise of the Matriarch expedition with Blue Sky Society Belief.
Whereas her collar was being changed, Umbabat was measured and assessed by the vet crew and was discovered to be in glorious situation. She was sedated for about half-hour, and was up on her ft and again along with her herd inside an hour.

Elephants Alive collars elephants to watch their actions, not solely to grasp their motion patterns and social behaviour, but in addition to maintain them protected once they wander outdoors protected boundaries. To this point, over 200 elephants have been collared throughout the Higher Kruger and surrounding areas, together with transfrontier areas that span South Africa and Mozambique.
