Vision of Abu
A Vision of Abu
Abu Camp was established as a place of sanctuary for elephants which had previously been exploited by humans. This role has expanded as Abu Camp has become a centre of excellence for elephant conservation, and a hot spot for research into the conservation challenges facing these incredible animals across Africa. Members of the Abu Herd which have been released into the wild continue to provide (through their satellite tracking collars) vital information about habitat selection, range, and the risk of elephant: human conflict. Meanwhile the members of the Abu Herd are eloquent ambassadors for their species, spreading a message of conservation and hope around the world thanks to their interactions with international guests, who then carry this vision of Abu home with them.
