The Amboseli Trust for Elephants

The Amboseli Elephant Research Project (AERP) is the longest running study of wild elephants in the world. Directed by well-known elephant biologist Cynthia Moss, AERP strives to create, maintain, and make available an unparalleled body of knowledge on a single, long-lived mammal species – the African savannah elephant. The major aim of the project is to produce published results, which will provide base-line information on elephant biology to relevant authorities and individuals who are responsible for the conservation and management of African elephants throughout their range. At the same time, AERP’s goal is to secure the future of the Amboseli elephant population by finding a balance between the needs of animals and the needs of the people with whom they share their range.
