India’s economy is growing and its burgeoning population currently stands at more than one-and-a-quarter billion. As a consequence, wildlife habitats across the country are shrinking and elephants and other migratory animals are increasingly in conflict with humans.

To address this, Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) and World Land Trust (WLT) are working together to secure safe passage for elephants, tigers and other threatened species away from humans.

Tumbesian-Andean forests are found between the Pacific Ocean and the western slopes of the Andes. Most of this region is seasonal dry forest, where many trees shed their leaves during the dry season. There are also patches shrubland, dominated by drought tolerant plants, many of which are endemic. Despite this harsh environment, dry forests remain threatened by agricultural expansion.
