The 2006 Zakouma elephant slaughter refers to a series of poaching massacres of African elephants in the vicinity of Zakouma National Park in southeastern Chad. These killings were documented in aerial surveys conducted from May through August 2006 and total at least 100 animals. This region has a four decade history of illegal killing of this species; in fact, the Chad population was over 300,000 animals as recently as 1970 and has been reduced to approximately 10,000 as of 2006. The African elephant nominally has Chadian governmental protection, but the implementation practices of the government (backed with certain EU help) have been insufficient to stem the slaughter by poachers. The African Bush Elephant (Loxodonta africana) species occurs in several countries of Eastern and Central A

  • 札庫馬象群屠殺指一系列發生在2006年非洲查德南方札庫馬國家公園附近的非洲象盜獵活動。由5月到8月的航空俯視調查已記錄至少上百隻遭屠獵的動物。非法盜獵象群在此地已經持續了40年之久。事實上查德的動物族群已經由1970年的30萬頭減少到2006年的1萬頭。非洲象儘管名義上受到的保護,歐盟也給予某些援助,但是實際執行力的貧弱一直無法揭止盜獵。非洲森林象同時也棲息在東非數個國家中。 最近的航空俯視調查在8月3日到8月11日由国际野生生物保护学会保育人士(J. Michael Fay)及國家地理學會當地探險家監督,發現了五處屠殺地點。札庫馬被視為是中非最後一處野生動物的前哨碉堡。被查德政府和蘇丹薩希零生態系統合理使用及保育計畫(Project Conservation and Rational Utilization of Sudan-Sahelian Ecosystems)委任的邁克·費主導2005跟2006年的札庫馬象群調查,發現數量由3885頭減少到3020頭,大幅抵銷了前六個月的急遽增長。不過誤算的數量並無法完全確定。
