Asian Elephants in the Wild: Elephant Talk 2015

The 2nd Edition of the Elephant Talk Conference 2015 culminated on the 6th of November 2015. The two-day event, , was conceived to delve upon the topics corridor-connectivity, conflict resolution & long-term planning, with the aim to create consensus on priority imperatives to drive meaningful conversation in the North Eastern Region of India and bordering states of Bhutan & Myanmar. Mr. Ranjit Barthakur, Chairman of the Balipara Foundation said that “conservation action cannot be fragmented as issues that face the Asian Elephant are common across all organizations & stakeholders. Conservation Organizations working in the Region have to come together under a common platform to ensure that each effort compliments the other and responds to a common goal”. The Conference was participated by all the leading Organizations & Experts from various facets of Wildlife Conservation (Governmental & Non-Governmental) to brainstorm upon the topics at hand and come up with a list of priority actionables that need to be immediately addressed and, most importantly, prescribe a structure of governance most likely to deliver on these priorities. The Event was  organized with support from WTI, WWF, WCS, IUCN, ANCF, Club of Rome, Corbett Foundation & APPL Foundation.
