Male Elephants Matter at All Ages: a half-century perspective on male elephant behaviour
Saturday, 19 February 2022, Muthaiga Country Club
Dr Vicki Fishlock,
Ph.D, is a resident scientist with Amboseli Elephant Research Project (the longest elephant study in the world), focusing on elephants in risk landscapes and the role of male elephants in shaping human-wildlife interface.

Dinner is served afterwards
Amboseli is home to the longest-running elephant study in the world. Since 1972 this small wild population has become globally famous through groundbreaking science, globally recognised films and popular books and a huge tourist market, many of whom come back many times. With a small dedicated staff following individually recognised elephants from birth to death, what can we possibly still have to learn from the Amboseli elephants, and what can that mean for other populations in Kenya and beyond?
I would argue we still have a long way to go integrating what we know about elephant biology into our strategies for elephant landscapes and their human communities, and that often-overlooked components of male behaviour are critical for continued human-elephant coexistence.
