‘Gajah Kotha’ campaign engages over 1,200 people to mitigate human-elephant conflict in Assam – World News Network

-

Guwahati (Assam) [India], July 13 (ANI): In order to mitigate the increasing human-elephant conflict (HEC), Assam launched the Gajah Kotha’ campaign, engaging over 1,200 people to foster coexistence.  
The initiative targets HEC-affected villages in eastern Assam, and educates them about the elephants’ behaviour, ecology, and cultural connection to the region and the importance of their conservation.
Aaranyak and the British Asian Trust, in partnership with the Assam Forest Department and with support from the Darwin Initiative, are implementing this initiative as part of their efforts for fostering coexistence.

“In consultation with scientists, artists, educators and conservationists, we have developed insightful and engaging awareness materials for exhibitions open to community members comprising of women, men, youth, elderly and students,” Dr Alolika Sinha, a senior conservationist at Aaranyaks Elephant Research and Conservation Division said.
“We have reached out to over 1,200 HEC affected people in eastern Assam through 24 ‘Gajah Kotha’ campaigns so far,” stated Aaranyak through a press statement.
The campaigns were held at Majuli’s Haladhibari, Jaborchuk Kathoni, Gazera, Gazera High School, Ujani Majuli Kherkatia High School, Pub Majuli Kherkatia HS School, Jaborchuk Basa, and Jopanchuk.
In Dibruagarh, the campaign was held at Konwabam, Panchukia Bongaon, Nahorjan Lebankula, Nagaghat Tantipather, Lebankula ME Schoolm and Kamargaon ME School. In Tinsukia, the campaign was conducted in Ujani Sadiya HS School and Padumphula.
Other locations included Sivasagar’s Chamarajan, Charaguwa Grant, Majumelia, Charagua ME School, Charagua High School, Demomukh Gohaingaon, and Jorhat’s Sankardev Janajati ME School and Bejorchiga.
Aaranyak collaborated with several local organisations to mobilise community members and future stewards from each HEC area.
These organisations and community members also interacted with Aaranyaks experts to discuss innovative approaches for human-wildlife coexistence.
“Our community educators, field staff, and village champions are working relentlessly on this coexistence initiative between the communities and elephants in Assam, home to a well-established elephant population as well as burgeoning conflict,” said Zakir Islam Bora, an Aaranyak official in charge of the initiative in Eastern Assam.
