Premiere estimation de la densite d'elephants dan le Parc National de Monte Alen, Guinee Equatoriale

, : Premiere estimation de la densite d'elephants dan le Parc National de Monte Alen, Guinee Equatoriale.

For the first time in Equatorial Guinea, the absolute density of elephants was determined following a survey on line transects carried out between October 2003 and February 2004 in the recently extended southern part of Monte Alen National Park (1200 km2). Elephant density was estimated at 0.55 animals/km2 (CI 95%: between 0.31 and 0.79). By integrating data collected on reconnaissance surveys parallel to transects, elephant density was corrected to 0.58 animals/ km2. It is estimated that about 700 elephants use the southern 1200 km2 of the park as part of their range. Despite past and present hunting pressure, this elephant density is close to figures obtained in little-disturbed areas of Central Africa, and it confirms the importance of Monte Alen National Park as a conservation area with a viable elephant population.
