The Co-existence project aims to foster safer shared spaces between people and wildlife using science based conservation interventions. The project is currently focussed in the State of West Bengal, India where human casualties due to encounters between people and large wildlife are alarmingly high. More than 50 people per year are injured by leopards in accidental encounters and more than 40 people die each year due to encounters with elephants. Our mission is to ensure zero human casualties due to elephant and leopard in the region using effective prevention strategies to promote long term co-existence between people and threatened wildlife in the region.
