This week we welcome Dr. Shermin de Silva, the founder and President of Trunks and Leaves. Dr. de Silva is an expert in Asian elephant conservation. We discuss many of the issues facing elephants in Asia. It is a fascinating look at how Asian elephant conservation differs from African elephant conservation. We also discuss many differences between African and Asian elephants and how that can influence their futures.

Dr. de Silva also asked us to share this as she said:
We have an emerging crisis in which one of the critical corridors linked to the national park is under threat. You can see more about it here on our blog. It's a developing situation and I am setting up a legal defense fund for the lawsuits being filed to protect the corridor.
You can donate to the defense fund by the following link (Thank you!)
