Аннотация: Forest fragmentation, loss of ecological connectivity, developments in human society have led to elephant conservation issues. Elephant conservation by Odisha state in eastern India began in 1987.

The book traces 30+ years' elephant conservation path in Odisha, provides quantitative case studies on human-elephant interface and the impact on people during 1997 to 2014.

Reasons for changing movements discussed; workable recommendations used in elephant conservation mentioned. Authored by Dr Lala Aswini Kumar Singh known for contributions in wildlife research from 1974, Dr H K Sahu of NOU and Dr N C Palei, it is an absorbing work for general readers with matters for researchers and Government in conservation of elephant and other wildlife.
