Sigur Nature Trust – Dedicated to exploring coexistence with wildlife
The Sigur Nature Trust is a private reserve and a wildlife corridor located in the center of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, southern India. The region harbors one of the most magnificent environments on Earth with elephants and tigers.
We humans have conquered nature successfully. Unfortunately, we still manage nature in a manner that puts ecosystems and species at risk. We need to find means to live in peace with nature.
The Trust has protected 30 acres of land for the past 50 years. It is a perfect “workshop” for exploring new relationships with nature. With actions ranging from involvement with local communities, experiments, teaching and research, we fulfill our mission: discover how to coexist better with wildlife.
Explore why coexistence with elephants is possible with our book Giant Hearts
Giant Hearts, our latest book, gives you a totally different outlook on elephants. We and many other scientists, writers and professionals, show how intelligent and sensitive the elephants can be. The book can be found at Amazon or Rupa.
Our latest publication “Can a wild Asian elephant change its interaction patterns with humans?” in Gajah can be found here.
Share our concerns in “News” and “Views”.
We have free e-books on nature. See “Publications” then “Books”.
