Why is there an elephant on the zebra-crossing? Did Bengaluru city move into its way or did the elephant come to Bengaluru? This project will help to understand elephant behavior, movement patterns and family composition in periurban areas by analyzing data collected over the last 15 years. Based on the findings Nishant from FERAL and Srinivas from FEP will make a prediction model that helps urban planners and policy makers to avoid human-elephant conflict in the future.
