Dr. Tarsh Thekaekara

MSc, University of Oxford. PhD, British Open University/Oxford University

I am a researcher-conservationist interested in more human inclusive models of nature conservation. I co-founded The Shola Trust in 2008, The Real Elephant Collective (a social enterprise) in 2015, and am an Associate Professor at the Centre for Human-Wildlife Coexistence, Transdisciplinary University. My area of research and intervention include work on Lantana camara, primarily looking at how communities can use the invasive plant in various ways. I am also particularly interested in how people and elephants share space, and finding ways to minimise negative interactions. Most of my work is in the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve (across Tamilnadu, Kerala and Karnataka), but I'm also keen on promoting human-wildlife coexistence at more national and global scales.
