Cheetah Conservation Project in Kuno
Take Survey

In September 2022, the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India released launched the ambitious Cheetah Reintroduction Project by releasing the first lot of eight cheetahs, sourced from Namibia, in Kuno National Park, Madhya Pradesh. This first-of-its-kind inter-continental reintroduction of a large cat is indeed a matter of great pride for India. The Corbett Foundation congratulates the Government of India and the Government of Madhya Pradesh for the successful beginning of this project. 


The Corbett Foundation (TCF) has partnered with Madhya Pradesh Forest Department to assist in preventing and mitigating human-cheetah conflict situations in around 50-odd villages situated around Kuno National Park (KNP). Cheetah conservation awareness among the local communities and human-cheetah conflict mitigation measures will be critical for cheetahs’ survival and establishment in KNP. TCF will strive to create an interface for human and cheetah coexistence before the cheetahs are set free to explore and establish themselves in the Kuno landscape. 


TCF is thankful to Madhya Pradesh Forest Department for this opportunity and long-standing partnership. 

Habitat restoration work in Satpuda Tiger Reserve
Take Survey
The Corbett Foundation (TCF), with the financial support and collaboration with The Nature Conservancy (TNC), has embarked on a habitat restoration project in Satpuda Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh. The work has begun over 435 hectares of forest area in the buffer zones of Tawa, Bagra and Pipariya ranges. Removal of invasive weeds such as Lantana camara and Hyptis suaveolens to ensure maintaining the meadows for foraging of wild herbivores is the primary objective. Over 300,000 kg of invasive species have been removed and the work is in progress. An assessment of the restored patches for the faunal and floral diversity is also an important aspect of this work.
The Corbett Foundation is grateful to The Nature Conservancy and Satpuda Tiger Reserve for the collaboration.
Rural community upliftment and capacity building of frontline forest department personnel in Corbett Landscape

The Corbett Foundation (TCF) with support from H T Parekh Foundation, the philanthropic arm of HDFC Limited, has initiated a conservation project in the buffer zone of Corbett Tiger Reserve, Uttarakhand. The project addresses the issues of human-wildlife negative interaction, works towards the capacity building of the frontline forest department personnel and continues to provide facilities of primary healthcare to the villages along the periphery of the forest.


Based on its previous interventions and experience, TCF has provided chain-linked fences to the farmlands that are along the forest fringe areas where elephant movements are not recorded, to prevent wild animals from eating crops. TCF has been providing iron poles to villagers as replacement to tree trunks while making haystacks. The villagers in the vicinity of Corbett Tiger Reserve have accepted this as a viable alternative to using trees and thus has generated a good demand for such iron poles in making of the haystack. The Corbett Foundation has been providing iron poles to forest fringe villages to reduce their dependence on forests.


TCF organised two workshops on anti-poaching and legal provisions for the successful prosecution in case of wildlife crimes for the frontline forest department personnel of Corbett Tiger Reserve and other territorial forest divisions in the Corbett landscape.  These workshops were held in collaboration with the Uttarakhand Forest Department and Wildlife Crime Control Bureau, Government of India. In addition to this, TCF provided around 300 high-beam torches to the frontline staff of Corbett Tiger Reserve, Terai-West Forest Division and Ramnagar Forest Division to aid in patrolling.


The Corbett Foundation is grateful to H T Parekh Foundation for its support in implementing this project. TCF is also thankful to Uttarakhand Forest Department and Wildlife Crime Control Bureau, Government of India for the collaboration.

Keep it Green and Clean - a waste disposal project in Kaziranga

With the support from Eicher Group Foundation, The Corbett Foundation (TCF) has embarked on a new waste disposal project in Kaziranga. The project addresses the critical issue of non-biodegradable waste disposal in and around two important wildlife corridors of Kaziranga - Kanchenjuri and Haldibari. Clean-up drives, awareness about the keeping the surroundings clean, minimise the use of non-biodegradable wastes, providing waste bins to responsibly collect trash, promoting energy-efficient cookstoves to minimise the use of fuelwood, and promoting bee-keeping by villagers as alternative livelihood are the major activities under this 15-month project.  


TCF is grateful to Eicher Group Foundation for the funding support and Kaziranga Tiger Reserve for the collaboration.

Green Livelihood Project in Kanha Tiger Reserve
Take Survey

The Corbett Foundation (TCF), with the support of PwC India Foundation, has taken up habitat restoration in the buffer zone of Kanha Tiger Reserve since 2019-20 over 16 hectares and another 20 hectares of degraded patch of forest has been taken up for restoration in 2022. Providing sustainable 'green' livelihood to the local communities is also an important aspect of this project. 


Around 60 beneficiaries belonging to two Selh Help Groups of Manoharpur and Saraipatera villages of KTR have been chosen to be trained in bee-keeping to promote extraction and sale of honey. These beneficiaries have been trained in the process and provided with honey boxes with live bee colonies. The beneficiaries have started extracting the honey. The next steps on the anvil are to provide FSSAI certification, help wth the packaging and market linkages to the honey produced. TCF team is working closely with these beneficiaries to provide them all the necessary support they need.


The Corbett Foundation is grateful to PwC India Foundation for the support towards these projects. The Corbett Foundation expresses its gratitude to Kanha Tiger Reserve for providing land for restoration and its cooperation and partnership.

Integrated Rural Development Project in Maharashtra

The Corbett Foundation (TCF), with the support of National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), initiated an Integrated Rural Development Project in 15 villages of Amboli-Dodamarg Conservation Reserve, which is a part of the Western Ghats in Maharashtra. Of many the many aspects of this project, one of the key elements is to provide sustainable alternative livelihoods to the village women sharing the natural landscape. TCF formed Self Help Groups in some of the villages and trained them in making food products, coir products, and bamboo products. Prerna Mahila Griha Udyog is one of the self-help groups supported under the project to start a masala (spice)-making enterprise in Sarmale village. The all-women group has been provided with the necessary support of machinery and raw materials and training under this project. TCF has also ensured that this masala-making unit has received the FSSAI certification and provide market linkages. Various types of masala are being sold by these women entrepreneurs. A women self-help group, namely Sajeri Kathya Udyog of Kesari village, has been trained to make coir products. Both Sarmale and Kesari villages are part of the Ecologically Sensitive Areas in the Western Ghats draft notification issued by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India.


The work done by both these SHGs was captured by Doordarshan Sahyadri channel. These news videos are available at the below links:

An interface exists between domestic animals and wildlife near Protected Areas, thus increasing the chances of communicable diseases such as Foot-and-Mouth Disease, Black Quarter, and Hemorrhagic Septicemia spreading among the wildlife species. The Corbett Foundation (TCF) has been regularly undertaking cattle vaccination programmes every year in collaboration with Kanha Tiger Reserve (KTR) to minimise the possibility of disease transmission from domestic to wild herbivores. A team of local paravets, under the guidance and supervision of TCF's veterinarian and local team members, goes door-to-door in every village of KTR and administers the vaccines.  


The Corbett Foundation is grateful to Kanha Tiger Reserve for the collaboration and co-financing the cattle vaccination programme. The Corbett Foundation is also grateful to Bombay Gow Rakshak Trust for consistently supporting our veterinary programme since 2005-06.
