The estimates of elephants in the Yobe Lidjombe block of the Dzanga Sangha Protected Area. The dung count method was not completely implemented because dung records were collected along recces (check page 33 and 34 of the survey report for further details on the recce statistical analysis) instead of systematic transects. As such it has been included in the Database as an informed guess.
