Prof. Raman Sukumar, Elephant Talk 2015

Prof. Raman Sukumar of the Indian Institute of Science, pointed at the importance of the contiguous landscape of North Bengal, North Bank of Brahmaputra, Kaziranga- Karbi Anglong Landscape and Meghalaya, in terms of elephant distribution. He recommended conversion of areas in tea gardens into forest plantations which will provide passage to elephants, besides promoting tourism. Government funds could be used in innovative ways to preserve biodiversity, alongside securing the Indo-Bhutan elephant corridors as the “Green Belt”. He also reiterated the need to balance conservation with social justice, coupled with necessary development.
