….We are also still grappling with over population of elephants as a country where we have over 83 000 against an ecological capacity of 55 000.

This causes serious disaster in terms of habitat destruction because elephants destroy vegetation, which will never recover as populations continue to rise,

According to the Director-General, the death of close to 200 elephants at Hwange national park this year was mainly due to the overpopulation due to depletion of natural resources that sustains life in these parks.
