I’m Chase LaDue, a PhD candidate in environmental science and an applied ecologist studying the behavior, physiology, and conservation of elephants. I use integrative research to inform strategies that promote the welfare of these large mammals in in-situ (wild) and ex-situ (captive) environments.

Wapiganapo tembo nyasi huumia.
When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers.
