About Corridors and Migration

Fifty percent of the sales of all Elephant Approved® products directly support the World Land Trust and Wildlife Trust of India. This includes several of our private label black tea blends and our double scoop tea measure. As a result, those funds go to restore corridors in southern India. Corridors are natural passageways for Asian Elephants. However, tea gardens and other agricultural activities have created fragmentation. Visit this link to learn more about the appeal.

Elephant corridors are linear, narrow, natural habitat links. Moreover, these corridors allow movement between secure habitats. They allow elephants to go undisturbed by humans. As a result, the corridors are essential to ensure their future with uninterrupted migration between key habitats.

About Asian Elephants and Habitat

Elephants are endangered. In addition, tea estates and other crops are a contributing factor. Approximately 37,000 wild Asian Elephants remain on our planet. India holds 60% of the population. Deforestation has caused fragmentation of elephant habitat. As a result, it has interrupted seasonal migration. Elephants cannot discern a tea garden from a forest. And this is where the trouble starts.

Asian Elephants in Tea Garden _ Human Elephant Conflict    Asian Elephant in Tea Garden

Elephants evoke fear. They trample tea gardens, destroy land and homes, and kill an average of 400 people a year. This is called Human-Elephant Conflict. The goal is to recover and restore the natural corridors.  As a result, elephants can safely move about without coming in contact with humans. Elephants die because of retaliation killings, including hunting, poisoning, trench trapping, and electrocuting. In addition, they struggle for food. They incur injury while crossing roadways.

Ensuring the Future of Asian Elephants

Elephant conservation is paramount for their survival. In other words. elephants are a keystone species.  This means that they play a serious role in the ecosystem. Their habits are necessary for the survival of flora and fauna. They spread seeds, produce fertilizer, prune trees, open tree canopies, and aerate the soil. They are highly intelligent with reasoning skills, emotions, empathy, sympathy.  And, they need our help.

Because of the trust, Asian Elephant safety through the corridor can now be secured. The Mudahalli corridor is of vital importance for elephants and other migrating mammals. This includes Bengal Tigers as they attempt to travel between the Ghats mountain ranges for food or mates. The funding is for the land exchange. As a result, the landowner can continue farming away from elephant passages. In other words, this situation is ends-up being a win-win.
