The wildlife conservation in many parts of Northeast India has been severely affected due to shrinkage,
degradation and fragmentation of forest cover, caused by human activity like slash and burn cultivation,
encroachment, poaching, mining for coal and limestone and an increasing human population.
In Garo Hills fallow lands are restored and more land is reserved for wildlife conservation. People are made aware of the stakes and of how they benefit from this. In Karbi Anglong a wildlife corridor is restored through land acquisition.
