Western Ghats Corridor


The project explores the feasibility of expanding the 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 questionnaire 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.
