Elephants and settlement areas
Due to constantly raising population numbers, living space of wildlife and human being crosses. In most cases, human settlements are close to natural resources such as rivers and rich grounds. But these are used by animals as well. Even though big mammals like the African elephant in Botswana can live in protected areas, these habitats are interrupted by human settlement structures. Botswana is home to the biggest population of African elephants. The problem for elephants is to get from one place to another safe and sound. Human beings are often considered a danger or competitor to the mammals’ natural resources. So-called Wildlife Corridors, a kind of pathway which connects two areas, can be an appropriate alternative to bring elephants in Botswana from one protected area to another.
