Our
Approach

Jamma wholeheartedly supports this committed non-profit organisation in its goal to develop and grow our understanding of elephant ecology. Their important research contributes towards the long-term survival of the African elephant and thereby helping to maintain the biodiversity of large parts of rural Africa.


Drawing on significant data gathered for two decades, Elephants Alive deliver research solutions that enable a greater understanding of the complex relationships that elephants have with each other and their surroundings, including the people with whom they share their world.

Promoting greater understanding and harmonious co-existence with nature’s giants.

Elephants Alive’s extensive long-term elephant tracking datasets provide information on landscape use, habitat expansion and perceived and real threats to elephants. Since 1998, Elephants Alive have deployed 90 GPS collars in 135 collaring operations, allowing the team to study and track individually identified elephants, monitor population dynamics and understand the motivation behind elephant movements from core conservation areas such as the Kruger National Park into protected areas along its borders.

Elephants Alive strives to put the science on the table in order to better protect elephants and ensure their survival by creating awareness and informing decision makers.

“Our research which is more than twenty years in the making, is aimed at improving our knowledge of the ecological processes that propagate the coexistence of elephants, their habitat and people.”

The Khomani San are the last remaining communities of the indigenous San people of South Africa. Jamma International has worked with this neglected community to build sustainable infrastructures for education, health care, water and communication.

We are delighted to be also supporting the Khomani San school to ensure that knowledge and skills are transferred to the younger generations, enabling the way of life of the San people to continue to develop.
