Work in the Gudalur Region of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve to develop a better understanding of human-elephant interaction in the region, focusing more on tolerance of Asian elephants rather than on conflict with them. Experiment with a range of site-specific interventions that could facilitate long-term human-elephant coexistence.

Strategic Direction: 1 Enable action by diverse communities and partnerships to ensure conservation of key biodiversity areas and enhance connectivity in the corridors
