Elephant herds are numerous along the Chobe River and most fecal waste identified along transects of the  river bank within in the park comes from this species. Field teams are identifying the influence of season on human animal  fecal loads by sampling along the bank and water across land uses in the system. Data already suggest that certain areas of the system have higher bacterial counts and sedimentation rates. We start the wet season transect  shortly.
