Project Report
Identification of critical crossing points of animals along the road in and around Anamalai Tiger Reserve and to suggest relevant mitigation measures to minimize road mortality.

Increasing tourism in the Anamalai hills have resulted in the death of endangered fauna such as Lion-tailed macaque, leopard cat, slender loris, and several other birds, endemic reptiles and amphibians by the fast plying vehicles. This study is designed to identify mitigation measures and implement them to reduce the road mortality of these species, besides contributing to the knowledge on the effects of traffic and road construction on forest animal movements.
