Everything we do at Ecoexist is about finding ways for people and elephants to share space. We think about conflict and coexistence from many different angles. We focus on long-range planning and short-term mitigation. We think about the needs of farmers in their nearby fields and we think about the needs of elephants across vast spaces and habitats. We strive to understand the human side - how people are living, what their aspirations and concerns are, what they need now and what they dream of for their children. And we strive to understand the elephants too - where, when, and how they are moving, what their patterns and behaviors are, and how their population is changing. We listen to people and, as best we can, we listen to elephants.
