A large group of elephants escaped from a provincial reserve in Mpumalanga recently. As the elephants were getting close to communities, action was required to chase them back into the reserve. Aspinall Foundation provided helicopter time and African Wildlife Vets, Dr Chris Smith was called to dart 2 elephants to ensure their collars were still working. Thankfully all the elephants were pushed back into the reserve and local monitoring teams will keep a close eye on them!
