Trip to India

Our Director, Nicolas Dubrocard, was invited by A ROCHA India to visit the Field Study Centre located South of Bangalore India.

During this trip dedicated to better understand the interaction between captive and wild elephants he could visit the Bannerughatta Biological Park where captive elephants have the chance to roam freely at night in the nearby National Park where they interact with wild elephants.

He could also participate in a a field trip to check a new project aiming to mitigate human elephant conflicts that are happening regularly in this area. A ROCHA is implementing a new system with signs becoming red when the elephants are crossing the roads. Thanks to these warnings the local people using these remote roads will be aware about the presence of elephants. It's a great improvement for the local communities and the elephants too.

Finally, he could introduce ACES work at Saint Joseph's University School of Life Sciences, Department of Zoology in Bangalore to students that were very motivated and interested in the topic.

We want to thank Mr H Ramesh, A ROCHA Field Coordinator, for accompanying our Director during his stay and Mr Avinash Krishnan, A ROCHA Director (Conservation Science) & CEO, to have organized this trip that will hopefully lead to future collaborations.
