Addressing the "Wallacean Shortfall" for Small Vertebrates in the Western Ghats Across Space and Time

Address the "Wallacean shortfall" (i.e. the lack data on the geographic distribution of taxa) with respect to key reptile and amphibian species in the Western Ghats through systematic field assessments of poorly known taxa, predictive distribution modeling, producing field guides, and feeding the results into other conservation planning and priority-setting exercises.

Community-Based Partnerships for Impact Assessment and Regulation of Tourism in Western Ghats

Address the threats that unregulated tourism development poses to natural ecosystems within the Mysore-Nilgiri Corridor by researching environmental impacts and promoting appropriate regulatory and management measures to mitigate negative effects. Build capacity to assess tourism impacts at the grassroots level, including by establishing community-based Tourism Impact Assessment Cells at two pilot sites and disseminating results to a wide range of stakeholders

Project Report
Freshwater Biodiversity Assessments in the Western Ghats: Fishes, Molluscs, Odonates, and Plants

Provide essential information for guiding decisions on the conservation and sustainable management of freshwater biodiversity in the Western Ghats by assimilating data on the distribution, conservation status and livelihood values of fishes, molluscs, odonates and aquatic plants, using them to define priority areas for conservation and best practices for management, and linking the results to conservation and sustainable development planning.

Project Report
Building capacities for conservation planning using open source tools and data
Addresses the gap between availability of spatial data and its use by conservationists. Basic level training will be provided in a user friendly and open source Geographical Information System (GIS) package, covering vector and raster GIS applications. Participants selected from across the Western Ghats will subsequently use the training for conservation planning, research and as a stepping stone to advanced spatial analysis
Grantee : Foundation for Ecological Research, Advocacy and Learning
Western Ghats Network of Protected Areas for Threatened Amphibians
Synthesize available information and use it to prepare reference materials and plans to guide amphibian conservation efforts. Produce a comprehensive guide to the taxonomy, ecology and conservation of Western Ghats amphibians, and a national plan for their management. Map sites in critical need of protection to avoid further amphibian extinctions and advocate for the establishment of a dedicated amphibian sanctuary
