◆︎ There has been confusion in the public where private individuals have in some cases incorrectly identified and given names to elephants not officially deemed as Tuskers in the KNP. It is against this background that SANParks calls members of the public to assist in contributing to the existing database and in the identification of the emerging Tuskers in the park by submitting images to the organisation through the Tuskers project and not any other entity. Those wanting to add their sightings to the database can submit images to [email protected]. Alternatively, those wanting identification or confirmation that their sighting qualifies as a Tusker can email [email protected] or tag Rosemary Hancock .

The above is the only registered research project in the park where animals are given names.
