Historical background Humane herd culling to alleviate habitat loss: 3,175 animals (1965 1969) Targeted restricted, overpopulated, stressed habitats Budongo Forest, Uganda Mkomazi National Park, Tanzania Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda Tsavo National Park, Kenya Biological measurement data collected taking advantage of unique situation

Project goal: Better access to unique, important data The primary goal of the Elephant Data Sheets project (part of the Ian Parker Collection of East African Wildlife Conservation ) is to make a unique and significant data set conveniently accessible and directly useable for analysis by (for example) biology students, wildlife conservation researchers, and veterinary practitioners. These scientifically valuable primary resources are already available as open access images online. Their value for teaching and research will be increased enormously, however, when they are transcribed to a machine readable data file. This project will signal the availability of these materials, encourage their use in academics and among practitioners, and will provide a level of access that is certain to make the data set a popular resource Library mini grant: http://www.ufdc.ufl.edu/IR00003175
