Segur Elephant Corridor


  • A committee appointed by the Supreme Court has officially deemed twelve privately-owned resorts located along the Segur elephant corridor as unauthorized or in violation of the law.

The Segur elephant corridor serves as a crucial passageway for the movement of elephants and various other wildlife species between different habitats within the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve.

Despite assertions from resort owners who disputed the corridor's designation as an elephant habitat, the committee ultimately sided with preserving the corridor's integrity. The committee's ruling highlighted that the resorts had constructed unlawful structures that impeded the natural movement of elephants.

While this decision secures the protection of the corridor, it carries economic implications for the local communities that depend on employment opportunities provided by these resorts.
