Wildlife Impact Assessment Survey and Social Survey
The annual wildlife impact assessment survey conducted by ATREE's Agasthyamalai Community Conservation Centre in partnership with Tamil Nadu Forest Department (TNFD) is happening from August 7th to 14th, 2018.
Since 2016 ATREE has been regularly conducting impact studies as part of the project 'SMK monitoring for change'. This survey is conducted during the annual Aadi Amavasa (no moon day in the Tamil month of Aadi) festival that is held in the Sorimuthayanar Temple at Kalakad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve (KMTR).
This year's survey involves 10 Atree researchers and 30 student volunteers. Apart from the survey, they are also assisting TNFD for frisking polythene and awareness creation.
