Conservation of wild populations
Our team recently took to the road and visited five National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries in Thailand to discuss about the human-elephant conflict and ways to solve it. We drove through the country to reach the areas most affected by human-elephant conflicts, in order to learn more and see how we can help.
Although the nature of the problems as well as solutions differed quite a lot in each area, there was one thing common for all places we visited: the increase in the number of wild elephants. While this is amazing news, it evidently also means an increase in conflict situations as the rainforests are not getting any bigger. In some areas, there is little capacity left for the growing populations. National Parks, Wildlife Sanctuaries and people living close to the protected forest areas are left with a massive challenge to find a solution that suits all parties, of whom one happens to be the biggest land animal in Asia.
We are currently looking for individuals and companies to co-operate with our Elephant Conservation Project through corporate sponsorship. Together we can help to conserve the wild populations by helping the National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries with their continuous efforts in reducing the human-elephant conflicts. Possible projects include donating material and funds for salt licks, drinking and bathing ponds, grass planting, bee hive fences, electric fences and other kinds of barriers. The hard-working rangers are also lacking equipment such as hammocks, flash lights and binoculars, as well as food supplies for their long patrol treks.
