India is one of the biggest tea cultivators in the world, and India, and India has a lot of elephants. elephants and tea farms don’t really work. India has killed a lot of elephants for tea, and because the elephants are endangered, someone named Mr.Bodosa, wants to put this war at rest. he wants to make an elephant friendly farm, so the elephants don’t ruin the crops, and the elephants don’t kill the workers in self-defence. this is all from the article”Can India’s Wild Elephants Find a Haven In Tea Gardens?” and I got it from EBSCO.
The elephants think that the tea farms are part of their habitat, because all of those plants, they feel really safe in the farms, so they go there regularly. but on the human side, the elephants are destroying their crops! and they don’t want that, so they shoo the elephants, nut the elephants don’t want to be shoo’d so they stand their ground, then it breaks into a deadly fight. ““Very often the elephants would destroy fences, uproot trees, and terrorize the employees,” says Mr. Bodosa. “That was when I got the idea that there must be a way to coexist peacefully.”” From that article Mr.Bodosa wants them to be together peacefully, so he got the elephant friendly farm.
From the sound of it, Mr. Bodosa has created the elephant friendly farm, and now has people supporting him, and even have other companies doing the same, to get better reputation, to sell more tea. and it seems like that the India tea companies are working with elephants, now and not against them.
