Partnering with Indian documentary maker Nature in Focus, we created a miniseries that tells stories of the Western Ghats. Each short, fast-paced episode introduces its EDGE inhabitants and their primeval landscapes, as all struggle to survive in a changing world.

Imagine humans living side by side with elephants and getting along. In our first episode of Nature in the Western Ghats we take you to Valparai, a small town in India’s Western Ghats, where the residents do just that.
Here, it’s not unusual for people to see elephants emerge from forest fragments to tramp through tea plantations or across roads. Thankfully, an early warning system that alerts them to these remarkable creatures has reduced the chance of these encounters being fatal.
