Elephant Corridor at Ngorongoro Crater PAMS built a protective fence along the fields of a corridor at the Ngorongoro crater last year. The “fence” exists from towels dipped in chili-sud. The sense of smell of elephants is highly sensitive, they stay away from the fence. Last year, an elephant did not come to the adjacent fields or even to the villages during the mostly nocturnal changes in the corridor. So the farmers learn to protect themselves and their fields and to live with the wild animals. Only then are they, of course, prepared to accept the idea of a National Park and the existence of wild animals – see Newsletter #18.
