The mitigation of the threats to wildlife on account of the presence of human settlements, highways, railway tracks, canals etc. has always been a priority for the park Management. The rehabilitation of Gujjars outside the Park had led to the recovery of important wildlife habitat. Recovery of tigers in Chilla & Gohri Range areas of the Park soon after the resettlement of gujjars is a conservation success story.
There are several traditional passages through which animals like elephants, tigers move from one part of the Park of the other or to other surrounding forest areas & such passages serve as an important means of genetic exchange which is crucial for the long term survival of these species. But these passages- ‘corridors’ are under threat due to the developments of National Highways, Railway lines etc. The Park Management has undertaken initiatives for restoration and strengthening of corridors.
35 to 40 trains passing daily over an 18 km. stretch of railway track through the Park poses a major threat to all wildlife in the Park, especially large animals like elephant. Initiatives like regular patrolling in the sensitive sections of the track by joint team of Park and Railway staff has resulted in considerable reduction in accidents.
