Project RE-HAB

Best online IAS coaching for UPSC IAS preparations

As part of innovation project RE-HAB (Reducing Elephant Human Attacks using Bees), boxes with bees were placed last month, at four locations on the periphery of the Nagarhole National Park in Kodagu district of Karnataka.

  • Under this initiative, bee boxes are used as a fence to prevent elephants from entering human habitation, thus reducing loss of lives and property.
  • The project is being implemented by Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) in a phased manner. 
  • It is a unique, cost-effective way of preventing elephant-human conflicts without causing any harm to both.
  • The innovation project RE-HAB has will soon be implemented in different states including West Bengal, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Assam, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala.
  • West Bengal, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Assam, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala are major elephant-human conflict zones where it is planning to implement Project RE-HAB in a phased manner.
  • Approximately 2,400 people have been killed in conflicts with wild elephants across the country since 2015.
  • State governments have taken several measures in the past like digging up trenches, erecting rail fencing and spiked pillars, and putting up electric fences and electric wire curtains to keep elephants away from human territories. Not only all these efforts failed but also ended up killing more elephants.
