My Locked Down Environment

Lockdown diaries on World Environment Day


As India is battling the Covid scare and the country is undergoing the version 2 of lockdown, I shifted my base to the Corbett landscape for a couple of months. My daily walks in these pristine woods resulted in some images which are a clear testimony of the fact that despite the disruption of wildlife corridors due to mushrooming of tourism infrastructure and urbanisation around some of the Indian forests, wildlife has adapted and learnt to survive amidst these settlements. While the big cats are thriving of livestock, giants like Asian Elephants prefer to raid the fields and agricultural lands. These regions have reported some of the highest conflict cases in India.
