Description: "Andaman has about 99 elephants distributed across different management regimes. The captive elephant research team of Asian Nature Conservation Foundation (ANCF) and Compassion Unlimited Plus Action (CUPA) collected data on captive conditions of elephants. This led to two benefits: welfare status of elephants and their mahouts across different management regimes in Andaman was now known. Fact sheets or profiles with selected features or parameters were developed. It is assumed this data base consisting of fact sheets for individual elephants and mahouts may act as a source of information for laymen and scientists, animal keepers and department officers, to access basic details of the elephants. In addition, the profile may act as a set format to follow as well as being an official layout for the way the data must be retrieved, categorizing of the elephants according to where they are housed, physical characteristics and health reports."
