Makuleke is well-known for the huge herds of elephants
that we see year round, especially in the dry season.
Michelle Henley is the Director and Principal Researcher at Elephants Alive. Michelle has worked on topics involving elephant ecology, behaviour & reproductive physiology for some 20 years. She completed her PhD on the sex- and age-related feeding distinctions in the African elephant.
Her research commenced in 2003 as Save the Elephants – South Africa, and draws on data collected over almost two decades. Michelle has been studying the Makuleke elephants since 2008 when she started collaring elephants in the area. The research contributes towards the long-term survival
of the African elephant, thereby maintaining the vital diversity of our world. If elephants are to survive, we need scientific knowledge and an intimate understanding of their movements and needs.
