Community Based Conflict Mitigation Trials: Results of Field Tests of Chilli as an Elephant Deterrent

Mitigating human elephant conflict remains a major conservation and livelihood challenge across the elephant (Loxodonta africana) range states. Chilli-based methods for deterring elephants from raiding fields are being used by subsistence farmers in Southern Africa, but there is concern that these methods may not be effective, are too expensive and labour intensive to implement and that there is poor uptake by farmers. As part of an ongoing study examining these issues, we present our assessment of the effectiveness of chilli as a component of Community Based Conflict Mitigation in deterring elephants from raiding crops in Southern Zambia. Chilli-based deterrent methods namely the chilli fence and chilli briquettes were evaluated in protecting maize (Zea mays) crops.
