·       It will also help to tackle the other environmental problems, and improves the bio-diversity, and helps to reduce the climate change.

HOW DOES THE PROJECT WORK?

·       Almost 15 to 20 bee boxes had to be placed in one region.

·       Reason for this technique is, the buzz of the bees irritates the elephants most.

·       This project will be implemented by Khadi and Village Industries Commission. It is a Statutory body established by Khadi and Village Industries Commission Act of 1956.
