    Abstract / Zusammenfassung

    To study the seasonal movements of bush African
    elephants and collect data about their home range in the Selous–Niassa wildlife corridor (SNWC), a capture and radio-collaring programme was implemented within the framework of the SNWC project. The SNWC project is a joint programme between the Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (Berlin, Germany), the Selous Conservation Programme, German Technical Cooperation (SCP/GTZ), the Wildlife Division
    of the Tanzania Ministry of Natural Resources
    and Tourism, Sokoine University of Agriculture
    (SUA, Morogoro, Tanzania) and the Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute, with funding from the Tropical Ecology Support Programme of GTZ. Its objective is to collect baseline data to assist in implementing a planned development cooperation project to protect and manage the corridor by setting up a string of village wildlife management areas. The goal of the project is to protect the entire wildlife corridor by encouraging local communities to participate, to benefit from sustainable use of natural resources and to
    combat transboundary poaching.
