Pelorus are proud to be working with leading conservationists in Angola to protect the remaining elephants against poaching, an essential step in rebuilding the population. With the elephant’s movements closely monitored in this project, rangers will be able to identify and respond to threats in real-time, working to protect these majestic creatures. Pelorus invites you to join this world-first project, in this cutting-edge and exclusive research.
Take to the skies in your helicopter alongside expert vets and conservation leaders, flying over the remote plains to locate your elephants. Your guides will teach you each step of the way as you learn to locate, target and dart the elephants using the safest and most humane method. Once your elephant has been darted, land close by to assist with the collaring process. Securing the collar to the elephant, you will retreat to a safe distance to observe the resuscitation process.
Over the days, your involvement in this process will gradually increase and by the end of your trip, you will be able to use your new skills to help lead the expedition, with the responsibility of identifying and targeting your elephant and then directing the vet as they dart them. Finally, you will take the reins on your collaring mission for a truly rewarding end to this exclusive experience.
