Natural systems vs ad hoc interventions in conservation

Wild elephants prefer natural waterbodies to artificial ones: study. A comprehensive study at the initiative of the Wildlife Society of India (WSC) finds that large herbivores like elephants living in the wild have an instinctive preference to natural waterbodies than artificially created waterholes. The study says that creating waterholes without proper research on their impacts could, in fact, be counterproductive to conservation.
