This dataset comprises aerial sample count data from a survey conducted in the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, Mozambique, in October 2014. The survey was conducted using a Cessna 185. A number of elephant carcasses, but no living animals, were observed, based on a coverage of 9.9% of the survey area of 1 574 km². *** Data capturer notes: *** This dataset was compiled as part of a 2014 survey of Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe. All 2014 Zimbabwe surveys were conducted using the same methodology, which appears robust, and the reports are of high quality.
