Abstract

The goal of this study was to evaluate the degree of association of the forest éléphants (Loxodonta cyclotis) to the entire set of ecosystems of the Loango national park, located on the Atlantic coast, in the south-west of Gabon. Six GPS collars were fixed on six female éléphants, and monitored from November 2003 to December 2004 in. Our results revealed that éléphants spent half of the time in savannas, and the rest of their time mostly in wetlands. The latter ecosystem was used disproportionately by éléphants, unlike forests and savannas, which were used in proportion to their availability. However, habitat préférences varied greatly among éléphant groups, and among seasons. Furthermore, wetlands were used predominantly at night. Only cultures were not visited by the six éléphant groups during the study. Despite their name, forest éléphants in this study rarely occurred in forests of the study area. The results of this study underline the need for taking into account the habitats of savannas and wetlands in forest éléphant monitoring protocols.
