Despite the banned on African Elephants ivory trade by CITES. The populations of this specie have continued to be threatened by poaching for meat and ivory, human elephant conflicts, habitat fragmentations in Cameroon and Democratic Republic of Congo. Protection within National Parks have proven to be ineffective, because elephants spent more time outside protected area and 80% of the continent elephants remain outside protected area. However establishment of elephants corridors along the surrounding land scape, demarcation of farms land with beehive bees fences, proper land planning system, public enlightenment and use of community based natural resources management system among others as proposed in this paper, would serve as an effective conservation strategies
