The Director of the Tarangire Elephant Project, Dr Charles Foley who has been studying the large mammals in the park for about twenty years now, stated here on Friday that the elephant growth in the eco-system clocking at 175 mammals per year, may be the fastest in Africa, but the Jumbos' population in Tarangire is still low.
"The Tarangire Eco-system also encompasses the Lake Manyara National Park which measures a whooping 20,000 square kilometres, which means that the Jumbos' density is very low by comparison," explained Dr Foley, who is also the Assistant Director of Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) programme in Tanzania.
There are about 3200 elephants in the Tarangire eco-system at the moment, taking into account the seven per cent annual increase topped onto the 2500 jumbo population counted during the Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute (TAWIRI) census of 2009.
Tanzania with a count of 110,000 elephants is second after Botswana (123,000), for having the largest number of Jumbos in Africa. According to Dr Foley, Selou Game Reserve with 45,000 elephants has the highest concentration of the large mammals in the country, followed by Ruaha National park with 35,000 jumbos.

Still, as WCS elephant conservationist Charles Foley noted, without their most precious tool, some may not survive through lean times. "Obviously they're going to be very susceptible during times of drought, when they would have to feed exclusively on leaves and bark," he said.

"Understanding how elephants and other animal populations react to droughts will be a central component of wildlife management and conservation," said Wildlife Conservation Society researcher Dr. Charles Foley, lead author of the study.
"It's enticing to think that these old females and their memories of previous periods of trauma and survival would have meant all the difference," added Foley."The data seem to support the speculation that the matriarchs with the necessary experience of such events were able to lead their groups to drought refugia."
During the 1970s and '80s, many of Eastern Africa's largest elephants fell victim to waves of poachers who were eager to exploit the profitability of the black market for ivory.
"Hopefully, this study underlines the importance of how crucial older matriarchs are to the health of elephant populations," added Foley.
