We’ve long been aware that the majestic Elephas Maximus is endangered. Over the years lots of important conservation work has been carried out in areas that are home to both African and Asian Elephants changing attitudes on ivory hunting and the destruction of natural habitats. In the case of the Asian Elephants you’ll be supporting population numbers have gone up. That in itself is great news but the work doesn’t end there…
The original reserve areas secured for elephants are now often too small for the number of resident elephants. This puts them in conflict with the local communities who naturally want to protect their agriculture. The PTES’s emergency work at the Mayurjharna Elephant Reserve in India for example revolves around mapping routes that the elephants use for migration. That means the seasonal movements of these magnificent mammals can be charted enabling the PTES researchers to work with communities to advise on where and when to plant crops.
