The elephant is the national heritage animal of India. It is the finest example of a species that is tough to look at but with the kindest of hearts. The jumbos are social animals that love, cry, play and live together as a family for a lifetime.
For African farmers living near the forest, the problem of man-elephant conflict is as persistent and troublesome as that in India.

It is the use of the innovative new Chilli Bomb, a simple and effective idea that India too can replicate.
