Enhancing landscape connectivity through multifunctional corridors in the Biligiri- Ranganswamy Temple Tiger and Agasthyamalai landscapes


The project is exploring the feasibility of expanding existing wildlife corridors in two locations of the Western Ghats. One in the BR hills MM Hills landscape and the other in Shenkotta area between Periyar and KMTR landscape. Using structured questionnnaire and sign surveys, we are identifying specific areas where animals are using or not using the existing corridor and mapping land tenure to explore if there are possibilities to protect them from land use change.
