Abstract

answer to crop-raiding lies in the creation of physical barriers. The ingenuity, versatility, determination and intelligence of elephant (and buffalo, dthough to a lesser degree) cannot be underestimated. Many varieties of barriers have been considered and many built, all a t excessive costs both during construction and afterwards, when attempting to maintain, in the face of persistent damage, an unbroken, impenetrable fence. In the Aberdare National Park where the well-known Treetops salient, a favourite big game migration route, Figure 1 Map snowang the Aberdare and Mount Kenya National Parks trnd Forest Reserves, and the settled (farmed) areas, in relation to the former game migratiort route and the line of the game tarrier. Figure 2 A n earlier type of ditch .$ feet wide, with 6 feet vertical walls; the spoil was thrown onto the outside to increase the height of the outer wall, on which the sloping fence was placed. This has now been amended bzy deepening the outside certical wall under the fence, awl abandoning the inner wall, so that the outside wall presents the maximum possible height to an animal attempting to leaxe the Park (which lies to the left of the fence). extends through Forest
