Knowledge, Attitude and Practice Survey for Human-Elephant Conflict in Elephant Corridors

April 2018

Research by Grameen Foundation India on human-elephant conflict and attitudes toward conservation reveals main factors shaping people’s attitudes toward elephant conservation. With surveys that span 12 elephant corridors in seven states, the study finds correlations between conservation attitudes and levels of poverty and education, as well as gender.  It identifies communication infrastructure that works best for both raising awareness of conservation and mitigating human-elephant conflict.
