In 2009, the AfESG partnered with the Asian Elephant Specialist Group to build a joint database, the African & Asian Elephant Database (AAED). The AAED is now live, and the AfESG is working to update it with all the survey data received since the last African Elephant Status Report in 2007.
The AAED is an Open Source software project, built by Solertium. Every aspect of the database is powered by free and open source software. If you are interested in joining this project, please visit the site to learn more.
The AAED allows you to:
We are very grateful to the European Commission, CITES MIKE, the Asian Elephant Conservation Fund of the USFWS, Tusk Trust, and Save The Elephants for their support of the development and ongoing maintenance of the AAED.
We are also very grateful to all the wildlife authorities, NGOs, and independent researchers, too many to name here, who continue to send us their survey data for incorporation into the AAED.
