The Wildlife Department has made arrangements to implement a special project called Gaja Mithuro (Elephants' friends) to protect wild elephants faced with the threat of extinction and also to uplift the living conditions of families displaced as a result of the human elephant conflict.

This project is implemented with the help of the Environment and Natural Resources Ministry. Under this project, it has been planned to allocate Rs. 118 million to erect electrified fences and complete the work within three years.

Are there any other measures being planned or implemented other than electrical fences to keep the elephants out?
