Topic: Adjusting to life in Kutupalong Camp 2
Translation summary: Rajiya escaped brutality in Pathoria Khila, Myanmar. The 40-year-old said she thanks Allah that the Bangladesh government has given refuge and, with partners, provided aid. She said medical care isn’t adequate, but she has found other positives: She can raise poultry – ducks and chickens – and she doesn’t fear robbery. If there are accidents or problems, Bangladesh security troops come to help.
Fatema, 22, said she feels safe and grateful to be in Camp 2 after fleeing the Myanmar community of Shil Khali. But her thoughts often go back to her home country. She wants to return, if and when offenders have paid for their crimes and compensated their victims.

Topic: Reducing conflicts between elephants and humans in Cox’s Bazar district
Topic summary: The Kutupalong-Balukhali megacamp mushroomed after August 2017 on forested hills and valleys – areas where Asian elephants long ago had developed a migratory corridor they followed in search of food and shelter. The sudden influx of humans and shelters blocked the elephants’ paths and led to conflict. Thirteen people died in clashes with elephants in 2018. Now, wildlife biologists and volunteers work to minimize conflicts to keep both humans and elephants safe. Supported by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the camps have Elephant Response Teams – roughly 600 volunteers who keep watch from 100 towers. Some 40 elephants live in the forests near the camp. If one wanders close, the response teams sound a warning and work together to drive it away.
