Professor Rachel Demotts- Elephants Without Borders

Our very own professor Rachel Demotts is currently on sabbatical in Kasane, Botswana, working with Elephants Without Borders. Her research is in the area of gendered dimensions of community-based conservation, as well as studying the increasing conflict between humans and elephants. To better understand the changing interactions between people and elephants, Dr. DeMotts will conduct participatory research in village areas along the corridors used by elephants to reach the Chobe river.
