Seasonal and spatial vulnerability to agricultural damage by elephants in the western Serengeti, Tanzania

Abstract: In the western Serengeti of Tanzania, African elephant Loxodonta africana populations are increasing, which is rare across the species’ range. Here, conservation objectives come into conflict with competing interests such as agriculture. Elephants regularly damage crops, which threatens livelihoods and undermines local support for conservation.
