Witness - India: Elephants in My Backyard

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

As human-animal conflict escalates in India, a conservationist is determined to prove people and elephants can co-exist.
Elephant habitats across India are shrinking at an alarming rate, leading to conflict with local residents.
In the southern region of Hassan, the conflict has been particularly intense. But accountant-turned-conservationist Vinod Krishnan is part of a team, led by Dr Anand Kumar, that is pioneering a radically new approach to deal with the conflict based on strategies of co-existence.
If successful, they could help revolutionise the way India deals with one of its most urgent and complex conservation challenges.
