Securing safe passage for elephants in India

Hello and greetings from Wildlife Trust of India!

We hope you are doing great.

With this email, we are sharing updates for our project titled 'Help Save Elephants in India'. We are so honoured and grateful for your support as you chose to donate for the project among so many wonderful causes out there. This means a lot to us. Thank you so much for believing in our work.

Today’s updates are from ‘Fatehpur-Gadgadia’ Elephant corridor in Uttarakhand. Elephant corridors are narrow strips that connect fragmented forest patches. These forest patches are the remnants of a once-intact wild habitat that has now been severely encroached and fractured to satisfy human development needs. If these critical linkages or corridors are not protected from further encroachment, elephants would be forced to venture into human habitations leading to conflict, damage to property and loss of lives (for both humans and elephants).

To protect these corridors, WTI has deployed and empowered localised organisations or individuals to work as the eyes, ears and voice for corridors. We call them the Green Corridor Champions, who regularly monitor animal movement through designated corridors; work with local state and central governments to institutionalise corridor protection; sensitise local community and tactfully dissaud them from activities that can result in land use changes. GCCs are the key stakeholders ensuring safe passage for elephants.

We have 13 GCC teams monitoring nearly 30 elephant corridors across India. One such GCC team - with who we have been working for the last five years – organised a training session for the youth from forest-fringe dwelling areas of Uttarakhand. The GCC team monitors the critical Fatehpur-Gadgadia corridor which connects the Fatehpur range of Ramnagar Forest Division with the Gadgadia range of the Terai Central Forest Division. The training was on managing human-elephant conflict situations on an individual and community level. Regular corridor monitoring and community sensitisation drives were also conducted by the team.

This work could have been made possible due to your support,for which we are so grateful to you. We will be back with similar updates very soon. Till then, take care.

Warm regards,

Team WTI
