Elephant Days & Nights
Elephant Days and Nights is a short documentary film on ANCF’s radio-telemetry based study of elephants in Buxa Tiger Reserve and adjoining areas in northern West Bengal. The northern Bengal region in India, along the Himalayan foothills, experiences one of the highest levels of elephant-human conflict in Asia. ANCF has been involved in a critical study of this conflict on behalf of the Government of West Bengal using radio-telemetry based monitoring of the home ranges of elephants, village surveys, and mapping of land use patterns. The film provides an overview of the causes of conflict and the possible solutions to the long term survival of wild elephants in this habitat.
