Conserving wildlife, enhancing livelihoods in areas of human-wildlife conflict
Connected Conservation assists communities manage conflict with wildlife through data driven solutions.
- We have pioneered community-based conflict mitigation using a suite of methods developed over decades of practical field and research experience.
- We monitor elephant populations using satellite tracking data

Who we are
We have extensive and diverse experience in human-wildlife management and coexistence strategies, including GIS and remote sensing, environmental impact assessments, project management, monitoring and evaluation, policy reviews, training needs assessment, project communications as well as tourism and micro-scale business development.
Our consultants have a wide range of experience. For example, we have prepared an elephant management plan for the Akagera National Park in Rwanda, conducted numerous wildlife capture and release programs around the continent, assisted the governments of Vietnam and Laos develop a joint management approach for their remaining elephant population as well as publishing a number of papers in peer-reviewed journals, books and manuals.
