Elephants travel large distances covering a range of landscapes. These journeys allow elephants to meet their basic needs for food and water needed to survive in varied environments. Increasingly, elephants must traverse lands that are heavily populated by highways, railways, mines and farms. Protecting ‘elephant corridors’ is essential for the conservation of Asian elephants, forests and other species.

Wildlife Corridors are generally designated as “clearly defined” areas through which wildlife moves from one forest tract to another, in search of food, water, refuge & breeding grounds. . In the Kaziranga Karbi Landscape there are such three well defined corridors- Panbari, Haldibari and Kanchunjuri.

The Northeast India and Bhutan border area provides refuge to 40% of the entire Asian elephant population in India and nearly 10% of Asian elephants worldwide. However the survival of this species is under threat due to an expanding human population, and accompanying development and habitat fragmentatio

Kaziranga is part of a larger landscape that extends south into the Karbi Anglong hills. These hills are the lifeline of the wildlife of Kaziranga during the monsoon period. With the rising flood waters of the Brahmaputra, most of the animals are forced to move to higher ground. Under this project, we are evaluating the use of corridors by elephants and tracking their movements through GPS collaring to determine the minimum area required by them in the hill region during the season of floods in order to plan for habitat protection.
