Sharing water with elephants

Living with elephants is not easy - Lekurruki Conservancy only has four freshwater springs on its 60,000 acres of land, all shared by people, livestock and wildlife.

One of the four freshwater springs in Lekurruki. The water - shared by people, wildlife and livestock - isn't safe for human consumption.

No water; no pasture - carousel

Droughts are becoming more frequent in Lekurruki leading to hunger, migration and conflict.

These people have been suffering from human-wildlife conflict, injuries, but they are not getting any benefit. So what I look forward to most as a conservancy manager is that the people living with wildlife will be able to get benefit from this wildlife, and at the same time we will be able to conserve and make our land more productive.
