Wildlife Occupancy Modeling at Kaziranga Karbi Anglong

Surveying Wildlife Movement through Tea Gardens & other Private Lands

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. But animals are prone to use the entire stretch of 50+ kms highway (NH 37)to cross over from Kaziranga to Karbi Anglong or vice-versa. The Project will conduct a Grid Cell survey of the 250+ sq km area that separates the two landscapes.
