Non-lethal solar-powered fences can be very effective at preventing elephants from entering villages or agricultural lands. However, if not set up properly, these fences can either be ineffective at keeping elephants out or become lethal to both elephants and humans.

This manual contains step-by-step instructions on how to install and maintain a low-cost solar-powered fence. The manual is intended to help officials, conservation NGOs, and communities safely install non-lethal solar-powered fences to help prevent losses of crops and property to elephants. It contains four sections.
