Corridors work!

This contains an interesting article, for the more scientifically minded of my readers. It shows how effective wildlife corridors can be, in this case for wolves and elk (wapiti) in Canada. It is likely that the same effects will be observed in India with Wild Dog (dhole) and other carnivores, such as tigers. In places like india, where land is costly, corridors between protected areas can be a very cost-effective way of increasing the area of land available to populations of larger mammals.

  1. And we have just heard from our Indian partners that elephants are already using the new corridor in Kerala. So spread the word.Corridors really do work, and are vital.
