Welcome to the African Elephant Status Report 2007 (AESR 2007) page.
The AESR 2007 presents the latest information on elephant population estimates and range at the site, national, regional and continental levels.
This edition presents some important new features. New tables assist in interpreting the possible reasons why estimates have changed since the previous edition; comparisons are made for methodologically comparable estimates at the regional level; and a system for prioritizing has been developed to guide governments and funding agencies in planning future surveys.
The web version of the AESR 2007 is in portable document format (PDF), and you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 5 or later) installed in order to view it.
