High risk of conflict between humans and elephants and lions

In a new article published in the journal Nature Communications, scientists have identified the areas that are most at risk for conflicts between humans and elephants and lions in Africa.

Associate Professor Enrico Di Minin, who is the lead author of this article and leads the Helsinki Lab of Interdisciplinary Conservation Science at the University of Helsinki, highlights that human pressure on elephants and lions is extremely high.

"We found that 82% of sites containing lions and elephants in Africa are adjacent to areas with considerable human pressure", says Di Minin.
