"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.

Dr. Charles Foley, director of the Tarangire Elephant Project, said in a recent article that record amounts of illegal ivory are being seized and poaching is a major threat to African elephants. But Foley, pictured here with his family, is also using numbers in the fight to save these magnificent creatures. With help from the Indianapolis Zoo, Foley will soon begin implementing a new tracking program that will gather data on elephant migratory patterns. The Indianapolis Zoo raised $90,000 for the project through parking donations collected at the 2012 Super Bowl. "The Indianapolis Zoo is proud to support this vital work in helping to save African elephants, the world's largest land animal and one of the most intelligent and fascinating creatures on Earth," Foley said in the article.

Tarangire Elephant Project, founded by Charles Foley, Ph.D., is dedicated to the conservation of wild elephants through grassroots research and education efforts. A significant portion of his work has focused on family groups and migration routes.

The meeting included representatives from Congo, Benin, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad, the Central African Republic, Gabon, Niger, Mali, Togo, Ivory Coast, Senegal and Guinea, who agreed on a resolution to protect elephants.
TEP Directors Charles and Lara Foley hope to be able to work with staff at Manyara Ranch to train scouts and monitor elephant movement into and out of the ranch.
The project, supported by the USFWS African Elephant Conservation Fund, will add to the scientific understanding of elephants in the Kwakuchinja Corridor and southern part of AWF's Maasai Steppe Heartland and will be useful in informing conservation efforts at the new Mkungunero Game Reserve, an important part of the elephant corridor directly south of Tarangire National Park.
TEP Directors Charles and Lara Foley have been studying the Tarangire elephant population since 1993 using techniques developed by the Amboseli Elephant Research Project.
Charles Foley's original research focused on the long-term effects of poaching on elephant population dynamics and has since expanded to include elephant ranging patterns in Tarangire National Park and the resulting human-wildlife conflicts. Over the years TEP has evolved from a research project into an effective elephant conservation effort. Working closely with AWF and other elephant conservationists, TEP's goal is to find a balance for the people and wildlife by keeping rangeland open to the elephants while making the presence of these formidable animals beneficial to the people who also live off that land.
In general, Charles Foley focuses his study on the Northern sub-population, one of the three sub-populations in Tarangire National Park. He performs census counts, monitors births and deaths, and makes behavioral observations. Using photographs of distinctive elephant features like ears, tusks and vein patterns, Foley has catalogued 1,100 individuals in 32 family groups.
