We connect science with practice. We gather social, ecological, and economic data to analyze the causes and consequences of human-elephant conflicts. With that analysis, and in collaboration with partners, we find strategies for coexistence.
In the short term, we empower farmers with practical, affordable, and effective tools to deter crop-raiding and reduce conflicts with elephants. In the long-term, we collaborate with local, national and international groups to create an enabling environment for a range of policies and programs that tackle the root causes of conflict.
