The Elephant Acoustics project aims to develop and deploy state-of-the-art technology to monitor and understand elephant presence in an area to mitigate human-elephant conflict. Every year more than 500 humans and 100 elephants die due to negative interactions in India. As per the forest department records of 2018, 68 humans and 60 wild elephants have been killed in the state of Assam alone. In addition to these casualties, certain areas in Assam such as the area between Kaziranga National Park and Karbi Anglong lose a third of its annual production of paddy to elephants. Our mission is to reduce human and elephant casualties in the region using effective prevention strategies to promote long term co-existence between human and threatened wildlife.
