There is well documented movement of elephants (from radio collars) along this corridor.
The corridor is not yet under threat from agricultural expansion, though there is increasing agricultural production south of Makame which may impact the area in future years.
The construction of a main road from Babati to the Simanjiro will bisect the corridor at the southern end of the park and will is likely to lead to increased immigration and settlement. Much of this area is set to become a WMA.
