The renowned biologist A.J.T Johnsingh suggests that the forests of Uttaranchal can easily support about 1000 elephants and 200 tigers
as long as this large habitat, now fragmented in three blocks is managed and protected as one continuous habitat for wildlife.
We have uploaded his report " A Road Map for Conservation in Uttaranchal" at the following link
Since this is a pdf file, downloading will take some time. But I can assure you it is well worth the wait. Mr. Johnsingh is an academic who is well versed with grassroot level realities and I have heard him passionately pleading the cause of
conservation - repeatedly stressing the need for field level awareness before taking up conservation issues.
