In March 2016, the BBC news crew documented a three part special report series on the future of African Elephants, focusing on problems facing their survival and how might they be saved. The article can be read at African Elephants and Conservation Approaches.

Namibia’s conservation efforts to mitigate the high costs of living with wildlife through granting ownership of managing wildlife to communities and communities being the sole beneficiaries, may be a possible example of how to minimise HWC in other areas with elephant populations. The Namibian approach which includes trophy hunting in communal conservancies is paying off, so much so that it is now being called conservation hunting. The documentary displays how communities are critical to conservation in Namibia.
