A 12 km stretch of solar-powered electric fencing has already been erected along the eastern
boundary of the Thuma Forest Reserve to avoid deadly confrontations between local farmers and marauding elephants.
However, confrontations continue south of the already established fence and the community
is appealing to urgently extend the elephant-proof fence for another 24 km.
This fence will not only save the community crop losses from elephant raids but also protect
the Thuma elephant population from angry farmers. Please
support us to finance the next stretch of fence to protect both people and elephants.
