Protect Your Village, Protect Elephants: Chhattisgarh’s Elephant Tracking App Shows the Way

Elephant Tracking App AI App Sounds the Alarm: Zero Elephant-Human Casualties in Chhattisgarh!

Warning! Wild elephants are close in your vicinity and they are about ten kilometres away! This chilling message used to strike fear in the hearts of villagers bordering the Udanti Sitanadi tiger reserve. But for the past seven months, thanks to an AI-powered savior, such alerts have brought peace of mind instead of panic.

The Chhattisgarh Elephant Tracking and Alert app, a revolutionary blend of technology and conservation, has achieved the remarkable feat of zero human casualties since its launch. This pilot project, now expanding across the state, uses real-time elephant tracking and AI to send targeted alerts to villagers within a 10 km radius.

Here’s how it works:

  • Elephant trackers and patrolling teams report the presence and movement of elephant herds to the app.
  • AI analyzes the data, identifying nearby villages based on GPS coordinates.
  • Villagers receive immediate alerts via calls, voice messages, and WhatsApp notifications.
  • Traditional “Munaadi” announcements further amplify the warnings in some areas.

This proactive approach empowers villagers to take precautionary measures, avoiding dangerous encounters. The success story has resonated, leading to the app’s wider adoption across forest divisions in Chhattisgarh.
