Story

Dolphin Foundation is one among the frontline agencies involved in natural resource management in northeastern region of India.

The major objectives of the organization to strengthen biodiversity conservation through action oriented field research, alternative sustainable livelihood generation, up-scaling of traditional knowledge (TDK) based rural livelihoods, institutionalization, capacity building, socio-economic development, environment education, evaluation & monitoring of natural resource management programs, policy advocacy to uphold environmental stability in the northeastern region of India .

The current primary focus is on the following issues that we need to address urgently :-

The major state of the northeast India -Assam  is also known as the “Land of Elephants” as over 5000 wild elephants live here. Fast degradation of critical elephant habitat of the Assam has been major cause of concern for the long term survival of the Asian Elephant. The state has lost its pristine forest coverage area of the size of Double Delhi during the last 2 decades. Due to loss of habitat, human-elephant conflict has been very sharply increasing leading to increased number of  human and elephant deaths besides property and standing crop destruction. The most striking fact is that people living far away from forest areas are also facing the heat of elephant depredation when they have nothing to do with forest destruction. The districts of Sonitpur, Udalguri, Goalpara, Golaghat etc. are the worst effected from human-elephant conflicts. 

The prime need of the  hour is to raise Electric Fencing to contain the rampaging elephant in their habitat and for that we want sizable amount of fund as the requirement is huge to cover 100 of km of their habitats. We are also working to address the root cause of the problem - the over and unsustainable exploitation of forest resources by promoting the alternative sustainable livelihoods for the forest dependent communities. These are some of the causes we are raising funds through this platform.
