Abstract

The need to protect wildlife corridor is increasingly gaining traction globally. Corridors in larger space of ecological conservation, occupy a niche. Their role and vitality in species conservation is well documented, but their definition is source of constant confusion. They have been generally understood to be linear landscape elements, meant to establish or facilitate connectivity across habitat and increase survivorship by increasing the diversity of specific gene pool. In more technical parlance, ecological literature defines corridors as a fundamental landscape element, being narrow strip of land which differ from the matrices on the either side. Kamrup (M) district is an administrative district of the Indian state of Assam. The area of Kamrup (M) is about 1528 sq. kms. Guwahati is the largest city in the indian state of Assam and also the largest urban area in the Northeast india. the latitude and longitude of the Guwahati are 26⁰14’45oN and 91⁰73’62o E. Deepor beel is a lake located to the south west of Guwahati city, in Kamrup district of Assam, India. To the south of Deepor beel there is Rani Garbhanga forest. there are five notified Elephant corridors across the forest to the Deepor beel. These five corridors are situated along the PWD Highway through Deepor beel 274 railway gate as the name of the corridor is given by the forest department. This corridor starts from the Rani forest in Meghalaya and Assam border and passes through the deep forest down to the Deepor Beel in search of water. The railway track cut the corridor in the tail end along with a VIP road that connect national highway-37 to the LGB airport Guwahati. The forest habitat contains many wild trees. The Elephant came down the corridor in search of water and food. Some of names of the plant they consume are Foxnut, Sal, Country Fig, Bamboo, Water hyacinth etc. The human population nearby the corridor in the beginning of the study was lesser in the month of August 2018 which increases over time and in the end of study period by the month of March 2019. The Elephant population is seen maximum in the month of August 2018 in number and minimum in the month of March’2019.
