Conservation of Animal Corridors and Infrastructural Development: Can They Be Balanced? An Overview

Conservation of Animal Corridors and Infrastructural Development: Can They Be Balanced? An Overview


Wildlife corridors have been used by various species to migrate, breed, and feed since ages. These are increasingly becoming relevant as essential tools for wildlife conservation. The mapping of these in the past few years have been done to understand the pattern and area of passage from which they pass so that these can be protected for their safety. However relentless development and degradation have led to the division of the habitat thereby affecting the corridors and the biodiversity of the region. It has been documented that the Asiatic Elephant corridors been one of the most frequently used. These corridors have at many places passed through core areas in sanctuaries/national parks or those with human habitation. A number of elephants, as well as humans, have either been injured or killed as a result of this ensuing human/animal conflict
