Guwahati: The 3rd Asian Elephant Range States Meeting (AsERSM) will be held in Nepal from April 27.
The sole purpose of the meeting is to secure the future of Asian elephants.
Delegates from all 13 Asian Elephant Range States are going to be a part of the meeting.
The main objective of the AsERSM is to identify the priorities and challenges at a country and range-wide level and to determine how they might best be addressed.
Every few years a select group of Asian elephant specialists, researchers, and conservationists convene to discuss priorities and goals to protect this endangered species.
Known as the Asian Elephant Specialist Group (AsESG), they are an advisory group of volunteer members that functions under the Species Survival Commission (SSC) of the World Conservation Union (IUCN).
