Summary

Working in the Gudalur region of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve in the Western Ghats, project aims to better understand the human-elephant interaction in the region, focusing more on tolerance of Asian elephants rather than on conflict with them. Also hopes to experiment with a range of site-specific interventions that could facilitate long-term human-elephant coexistence.
