HUMAN ELEPHANT CONFLICT MANAGEMENT

    The Muthoot Group, in association with WWF-India, is working towards elephant conservation with a special focus on managing the Human-Elephant Conflict (HEC) and protecting elephant habitats.
    The project is being implemented in selected areas of Uttarakhand, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and West Bengal. The project entails measures such as formation of Anti Depredation Squads (ADS), conducting regular training and orientation sessions of these ADS, setting up of low cost solar fences around villages and electric fencings around agricultural fields. Infra-red motion sensors that activate alarms on sensing elephants in the vicinity have also been developed and installed. Torch lights and search lights have been distributed in several areas to help locals in spotting elephants and preventing damage to crops, property and life.
